A couple of weeks ago, I told you about the new law taking effect in Illinois that eliminates the need for parental notification in order for minors to obtain an abortion. I noted at the time how the Governor took the opportunity to crow about the expansion of “women’s rights” — (a worthy trade-off to destroying the rights of parents – and of the unborn, to his way of thinking it seems).
Now, Governor Pritzker is touting the anticipated overturning of Roe v. Wade as a sweet business opportunity for Illinois. While some state and city officials believe “reversing the landmark decision would help Illinois attract businesses eager to recruit young workers with socially progressive views,” the Governor seems particularly enthused about the prospect, noting, “This is another arrow in our quiver…We are always talking to companies about coming to Illinois, but this is another powerful point of discussion.”
