Pro-Life Lawsuit against the state of Illinois

Pro-Life Lawsuit against the State of Illinois

NO HB40
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.

51 pro-life laws have passed this year, saving babies from abortion

As we begin the second half of 2015, some pro-lifers may be discouraged by recent judicial intervention that allows abortion facilities to remain open, or prevents other pro-life laws from passing. But the truth is, the pro-life side is still winning.

This year alone, 51 new pro-life laws have been enacted. As the Guttmacher Institute reports, there have been 282 abortion restrictions since 2010. Guttmacher notes that pro-life laws passed in the first half of 2015 already exceed all of 2014.

The pro-life laws passed take on a variety of aspects, but a few themes prevail: patient safety laws—known as Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP) laws by abortion advocates, medication abortion laws, waiting periods for abortions, and D&E abortions (usually known as “dismemberment abortions”).
