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.

VIDEO: Gutierrez thanks Planned Parenthood

At Wednesday's U.S. House hearing on Planned Parenthood, Illinois' Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-04) thanked the people that work at Planned Parenthood, attributing their services to 500,000 less pregnancies last year.

"I'm not for abortion," Gutierrez said, "but I do honk that I'm pro-choice."

Gutierrez said no one has proven that Planned Parenthood is selling body parts, but, "I'm right to defend my two daughters' rights."
