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.

Loyola's MLK Celebration to Feature Speaker Who Thanked God for Abortion

CHICAGO - The Catholic Loyola University of Chicago, is hosting a pro-abortion journalist, who once thanked God for abortion on television, as the keynote speaker of the Jesuit university’s Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration on January 21. The journalist/writer Touré will deliver a speech entitled “How Racism Functions Today.”

Two years ago - on the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade - Touré promoted his support for abortion rights on MSNBC where he recounted the story of a past girlfriend’s abortion and how it “saved [his] life.

Prior to the presidential election in November 2012, Touré sent out a retweet encouraging girls to get abortions immediately “in case the Republicans win.” In 2014, he was accused of anti-Semitism when he suggested that Jewish survivors of the Holocaust benefited from “the power of whiteness.”
