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.

Abortuary inspection, fines lead to revocation of license

A Chicago-area late-term abortion clinic with a lengthy track record of violations wants its license back.

Most abortion clinics in Illinois aren't inspected, but that's not the case for Albany which is part of the Family Planning Association, because it is a late-term abortion facility.

Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League tells OneNewsNow that when the inspections were conducted, officials discovered a host of problems.

Scheidler, Eric (Pro-Life Action League) "[They found] unsafe equipment, they found fire hazards, they found a generator that was not installed correctly that could cause not only danger for people trying to flee in the case of a power outage but could actually kill a woman if she were on life support at the time under anesthesia for a late-term abortion."
