*** UPDATED x1 *** Cosgrove tries to stir up pro-life groups against a possible Rauner AV

Wednesday, Sep 27, 2017

* Personal PAC’s Terry Cosgrove on the possibility that Gov. Rauner could issue an amendatory veto of HB40 to remove the public funding component but leaving the new “trigger” deletion in place as a sort of compromise between the two sides…

Will Anti-Abortion Activists Back Trigger Repeal Move?

If Brady, Durkin, McSweeney, Breen, Morrison, Jiesel, McConchie, McDormand et. al. put their stamp of approval on Rauner’s deal to get rid of their sacred “trigger” law in exchange for his piles of money and their supporting him, how will the folks at Illinois Review, “we are not a hate group!” Illinois Family Institute, Illinois “Right to Life” (except for women, of course) et. al. react if their so-called “champions of life” legislative leaders saying that it is ok to get rid of the “life begins at conception” language in Illinois law? Outlawing all abortion is their dream with a Trump appointed Supreme Court ready to allow it, and now they are all trading it away. I believe there are a few bible verses they all might want to look at.

Um, OK. Your thoughts?

*** UPDATE ***  Illinois Review

Wednesday, State Rep. David McSweeney (R-Barrington) and Jerry Costello (D-Collinsville) introduced HR 620, a bi-partisan effort to stop Illinois taxpayers from paying for abortions and squelch the growing movement to effectively end the “Hyde Amendment.”

The resolution

WHEREAS, in the 2017 spring session of the 100th General Assembly, both houses of the General Assembly considered, and with partisan votes passed, a bill – House Bill 40 – that was primarily drafted to expand state funding for abortions; and

WHEREAS, on April 14, 2017, Bruce Rauner, at a time when the Governor was in full awareness of HB 40 and its intended purpose, publicly pledged that the he would veto the bill; and

WHEREAS, Illinois is already one of the highest-taxed states in the United States, especially after the adoption of the recent 32% increase in the income tax rate, and it is not appropriate to expand state funding for abortions; therefore be it

RESOLVED, by the Illinois House of Representatives of the 100th General Assembly, that we call upon Governor Bruce Rauner to immediately honor his pledge to veto HB 40; and be it

    He’s not wrong that they’ll be mad. I mean, it’s easier to rally people against the Medicaid aspect, but the most far right social folks will still be pissed if he puts the stamp of approval on keeping abortion legal in the face of a Roe overturn.

    Dear Mr. Cosgrove,

    In this instance, you are not like a commenter (like me or others) that can and should speculate, and use hyperbole when the issue at hand will in of itself sort out where you (as an organization and you the individual) can find the issue to benefit your cause and motivate and advocate your position.

    All this does is insert you in the middle and make you the discussion well outside the issue at hand.

    If that’s the goal, you succeeded.

    You should listen to Officer Malone and then move and press forward after. Until that time…

    “Don’t wait for it to happen. Don’t even want it to happen. Just watch what does happen.”

    … then move accordingly.

    OW

    Very clunky. If Rauner AV’s this and leaves the trigger in it, there aren’t enough votes on the Dem side to override the AV anyway. Republicans can vote Red and still not pay any price. This isn’t going to be about Republicans votes on an AV. You can go after those that voted against the original bill in a much cleaner fashion. The AV is going to be all about Rauner, and that is where Terry should focus.


  6. - John Rawlssss - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 12:04 pm:

    Terry Cosgrove does NOT care about protecting abortion rights. He only cares about attacking Rauner. If Cosgrove cared about protecting women, as he claims, he would devote the full resources of Personal PAC towards sustaining an amendatory veto that ends the trigger provision.


  7. - Thomas Paine - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 12:06 pm:

    They will be fine with it Terry, because they understand as you do that the AV kills the bill.


  8. - Cosgrove - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 12:12 pm:

    Right. Just like Rauner can be trusted to tell the truth to them, or anyone.


  9. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 12:20 pm:

    I would say that allowing state employees access to an abortion and use their insurance for it would be protecting and fighting for women. Allowing poor women access to covered choice options is advocating for women.
    But nice try


  10. - Chris - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 12:21 pm:

    The so-called trigger law doesn’t exist. This has been debunked numerous times. A court, the ACLU, AUL and the IL Legislative Research Unit have all said there is no trigger law. For political purposes the ACLU is changing it’s tune, but it’s clear that the trigger law narrative is a hoax. IL Right To Life knows that as well.


  11. - DarkHorse - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 12:22 pm:

    The campaign season will kick into a higher gear when Rauner’s AG pick starts getting questions about her pro-life views vs. those of the Governor.


  12. - cdog - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 12:29 pm:

    Thoughts?

    That paragraph is a mess and nearly incomprehensible.


  13. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 12:35 pm:

    Terry talking about verses in the Bible is what I found hilarious. Hey Terry if you want to get religious over this how about those Ten Commandments? Did you happen to forget one of them?


  14. - Chris - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 12:46 pm:

    I don’t know if cdog was referring to my paragraph… I will clarify. There is language in the 1975 abortion law that says it’s the intention of the state to protect unborn humans from abortion as we once did. However, the nature of that language is such that it has no legal impact if Roe is overturned. Therefore, there is no “trigger law.” Pro-lifers like the language being in the law because it’s less dehumanizing than it could be, but legally, it’s irrelevant. The abortion/pro-choice lobby knows this, but they advance the narrative of a trigger law in an attempt to rally their base, confuse the public and deflect from the only substantive thing this bill actually does, which is to increase the number of abortions by forcing taxpayers to pay for it.


  15. - cdog - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 12:57 pm:

    Chris, both your paragraphs were very well-constructed and nicely communicated your thoughts. Interesting info, too.

    The Cosgrove statement was what I felt was incomprehensible. The decaf comment nailed it.


  16. - Curl of the Burl - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 1:01 pm:

    What did I just read?


  17. - Anon221 - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 2:10 pm:

    To the Resolution…

    “WHEREAS, in the 2017 spring session of the 100th General Assembly, both houses of the General Assembly considered, and with partisan votes passed…”

    If it passed with partisan votes, do they really think the resolution would get enough votes to support a full veto??? Guess it’s good for a media release.


  18. - Commonsense in Illinois - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 2:39 pm:

    Dear Mssrs McSweeney and Costello:

    Nice try, but as usual you’re day late. Still, it’ll make a nice press release and show those back home who don’t read, that you’re both men of action!
