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.

Nothing 'pro-life' about shooter's actions

The accused gunman, 57-year-old Robert Lewis Dear, makes his first court appearance today in the wake of the weekend shooting at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs that left three people dead. Planned Parenthood is making the most of Dear's alleged comments as he was arrested Friday night. The Associated Press reports that in the middle of a rambling statement he said "no more baby parts."

In a statement released after the shooting, Vicki Cowart, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains, said "continued attacks against abortion providers ... is creating a poisonous environment that breeds acts of violence." But investigators in Colorado Springs are refusing to say the shooting had anything to do with Planned Parenthood.

Pro-life leaders across the country quickly and unequivocally condemned the shooting, among them Tony Perkins, who was among those targeted at the Family Research Council offices by a deranged gunman who had thoughts of killing "right-wing Christians" in August 2012.
