The State Aid – Public Aid Abortions Bill, HB 4013, will remove restrictions on taxpayer funding of abortions. HB 4013 was filled by Rep. Sara Feigenholtz (D – District 12).

The ban on taxpayer funding of abortion for state employees and Medicaid recipients has saved the lives of thousands of babies in Illinois since its inception in 1977.


If passed this bill will:

  • Remove restrictions on taxpayer funding of abortions for state employees and those receiving Medicaid.
  • Allow physicians who willfully performed an abortion procedure on a non-pregnant woman to provide medical assistance to public aid recipients.
  • Allow Department of Human services to give grants to nonprofit agencies and organizations for abortion purposes.

Status: HB 2013 is currently in the House Rules Committee.
