Lawmaker seeks abortion-bill vote as women march on Capitol

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — A Democratic lawmaker pushing legislation to remove prohibitions on publicly funded abortions in Illinois hopes to call it for a vote Tuesday as thousands of women converge on the capital to lobby for a “progressive agenda.” Chicago Rep. Sara Feigenholtz’s measure would lift restrictions on abortions funded by Medicaid or state employee health insurance. Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner has pledged to veto it.
