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.

National Protest of Planned Parenthood scheduled for Saturday morning

The Planned Parenthood Center in Aurora Illinois will one abortion clinic throughout the nation that will be protested Saturday, August 22 from 9 to 11 am.  Multiple protests will be held in 37 states in response to undercover videos that show Planned Parenthood officials in California, Texas and Colorado negotiating with fetal tissue buyers and inside looks at labs where aborted baby parts are gathered.

Chicago's Pro-Life Action League, led by Eric Scheidler, is one of the national protest organizers.

"The protests will declare," their website says, “'Planned Parenthood sells baby parts!' to raise public awareness of this scandalous practice, which was recently brought to light in a series of undercover videos by the Center for Medical Progress."
