Rauner broke his promise by signing abortion coverage bill, Cupich says

A few hours before placing his signature on a controversial bill expanding taxpayer-funded abortion coverage on Thursday, Gov. Bruce Rauner made a courtesy call to Chicago Cardinal Blase Cupich.

The archbishop reminded him that he was disappointed not only by the policy decision, but also by the governor’s choice to break his promise. Last spring, Rauner had assured opponents of abortion rights that he would veto the measure.
