CHICAGO (LifeSiteNews) – Chicago announced recently that it has set aside $500,000 to help women abort their babies.
“We are soldiers prepared to fight,” leftist lesbian Mayor Lori Lightfoot said on Monday at a press conference to announce the “reproductive health investments.”
She said the city will provide “$500,000 to scale up access to reproductive health care for those who are going to need it.”
This includes “Chicagoans and our neighbors, these dollars will go to support transportation, lodging, follow-up care and if necessary, the safe and legal procedure of abortion.”
The mayor said that “to women here in Chicago and Illinois and in neighboring states here in the Midwest, regardless of where you live, you deserve safe and accessible health care, and in the city of Chicago we are prepared … to support your reproductive rights.”
The press conference came as a result of the leaked Supreme Court Roe v. Wade reversal opinion.
Lightfoot explained the “Justice for All” pledge would allow the city to “continue to be a beacon of democracy and freedom for everyone.”
The funds for abortion will ensure the city “enhances and facilitates everyone’s ability to thrive and fulfill their God-given potential.”
The pledge “express[es] our commitment to creating a safe haven for all who are unjustly denied the resources and opportunities that they deserve and need to live.”
The mayor, who instituted a vaccine passport system for the entire city and a jab mandate for city workers, said the city would “fight to ensure that no person will be attacked, assaulted, bullied or discriminated against, because of who they are the choices they make regarding their bodily autonomy.”
The pro-life Thomas More Society criticized the new fund in a statement to LifeSiteNews.
“Chicago is already known as a killing capital of the world for people who are born, and now Lori Lightfoot will dedicate Chicago government’s resources to killing those not yet born,” the nonprofit Catholic legal group told LifeSiteNews on Wednesday. “Every neighboring state to Illinois should follow the lead of the State of Texas and protect the unborn residents of their states and ban out-of-state abortion funds like these.”
Lightfoot spreads fake news about attack on pro-life group
Mayor Lightfoot also appeared to mix up the facts of a recent violent attack in Wisconsin. “We already saw what is going to hopefully … not be a precursor, but just this weekend we saw a Molotov cocktail that was lodged at an abortion facility in Madison, Wisconsin.”
“Unfortunately, we have to assume that more copycats will follow and we need to … make sure that we’re doing everything we can to protect and safeguard women’s rights to reproductive care,” the mayor said.
No abortion facility in Madison, Wisconsin, was attacked with a Molotov cocktail – but a pro-life group’s office in the state capital was attacked by leftists with one, as well as with an arson set by at least one person.
On Tuesday, Lightfoot issued a “call to arms” to her “friends in the LGBTQ+ community” over the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion. At her press conference Monday, Lightfoot also baselessly claimed the leaked draft opinion could lead to bans on interracial marriage.
