Pro-Life Lawsuit against the state of Illinois
Pro-Life Lawsuit against the State of Illinois
|On November 30, 2017, the Thomas More Society filed a taxpayer lawsuit against State of Illinois officials in a counter attack against House Bill 40, which requires public funding of tens of thousands of elective abortions. The taxpayer lawsuit, filed in the Sangamon County Circuit Court, is brought on behalf of hundreds of thousands of Illinois taxpayers, represented by county and statewide pro-life organizations including the Illinois Federation for Right to Life and it's many affiliates. |
|HB 40 would force every Illinoisan to pay for free abortions for those on Medicaid and state employee health insurance. This would apply through the full nine months of pregnancy and for any reason, even when the latest scientific research has shown that the unborn child can feel pain and survive outside the womb. |
The Thomas More society is a not for profit national public interest law firm dedicated to restoring respect in law for life, family, and religious freedom. The Thomas More Society is based in Chicago. Please consider helping the Thomas More Society with your financial support.

Mother pregnant with 2 babies, not twins
According to AOLNews.com, July 17:
A UT woman is pregnant with 2 babies, but they're not twins....
Angie Cromar was born with a rare condition called didelphys, which means she has 2 uteruses. It didn't pose a problem for her previous pregnancies, and the 34-year-old has given birth to 2 healthy children before.
But this time, she's conceived in both uteruses. During her 1st ultrasound exam, Cromar and her doctor discovered that she's carrying 2 fetuses at different stages of development, one slightly older than the other.
"[He said] I'm 5 weeks and 4 days in one, and 6 weeks and 1 day in the other," Cromar [said]...
The chances of this happening are estimated to be 1 in 5 million. "Probably less than 100, so far, worldwide, have been reported," [Dr. Steve] Terry, [Cromar's Ob/Gyn] said. "So she's a member of a small, elite club."
Cromar herself is a labor and delivery nurse, and knows the complications her condition can bring: chances of pre-term labor and low birth weight....

My hunch is the babies will be delivered by c-section at the same time.
I thought this comment was pretty funny...
