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.

Dold to Defend Planned Parenthood, Illicit Sex Programs and Abortion


Planned Parenthood is up to another round of embarrassing, taxpayer-funded high jinks -

Washington state college students are getting high-tech condoms in a social media experiment by Planned Parenthood. In a bizarre promotion of "safe sex" bragging social media posts, students received specially packaged condoms, which included a special QR code. The codes can be scanned by smart phones, allowing the participants to "check-in" their sex activities on the website, The various locations of the "safe" sexual activity are then posted on an area map.

And the same day comes word that Illinois Congressman Bob Dold (IL-10) is planning a press conference Wednesday to do what?  Defend and stand with Planned Parenthood. Really?

"In response to the growing number of efforts to discriminate against and exclude organizations like Planned Parenthood from participating in health care programs, Dold's legislation would protect the inclusion of any hospital or health care entity that seeks to participate in the Title X family planning program," his office said in a release.

We thought Dold was a moderate on promoting abortion and illicit sex.  At least that what conservatives in his district were led to believe. Terribly disappointing, Rep. Dold.

His DC office number is 202 224 4835 and his defense of Planned Parenthood is inexcusable.
