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.

Uninspected Illinois abortion clinics death traps for women

The problem in Illinois is that often there is almost no regulation of abortion facilities.

“With about half the abortion clinics in Illinois, we can't even find out what's happening inside these places because they are under no inspection regime,” Scheidler tells OneNewsNow.

“So I hope this is ... a call to the state officials of Illinois to finally restore state oversight and inspection of abortion clinics.”

Scheidler says there's no way to know what horrific conditions might be present, so women are potentially taking a risk by having abortions in Illinois.
