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.

A pro-life bill could reach our pro-abortion president

A bill defunding Planned Parenthood could be headed to President Obama soon.

A so-called reconciliation  bill was introduced because it requires a majority vote in the Republican-led Senate.

Mallory Quigley of the Susan B. Anthony List reports good news for pro-lifers, which is that the senate parliamentarian will allow the bill to move forward after first suggesting it needed 60 votes.

"Clearing that parliamentary hurdle was certainly the biggest obstacle," she tells OneNewsNow.

The senate could vote soon on the measure, which Quigley says presents an opportunity to put a pro-life measure on the desk of the pro-abortion President.
