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.

Students Create Unbelievable Works of Art for National Pro-Life Chalk Day

Yesterday, Students for Life of America (SFLA) and other pro-life groups participated in National Pro-Life Chalk Day at junior high, high school and college campuses across the country.

Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life, said SFLA has encouraged sidewalk chalking on college campuses and public places in the past because its one of the cheapest, most creative and effective ways of getting your pro-life message out to as many people as there is foot traffic.

Hawkins said, “Sidewalk chalking pro-life messages on campus is a critical tool to educate students in schools across the country. With a few pieces of chalk and pro-life slogans, you can leave a lasting impression on hundreds or even thousands of people. With National Pro-Life Chalk Day, we are uniting students from across the country as they make an impact on their campus and their communities.”

As it turns out, pro-lifers are pretty artistic! See some of their artwork below!
