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.

Out-of-touch pro-abortion advocates “celebrate” abortion

It is almost January 22, the 43rd anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, and abortion “celebrations” are being organized – with the same, old rhetoric attracting the same, old people. These celebrations by Planned Parenthood and abortion supporters are out-of-touch in a culture that is growing more pro-life every day.

In 2015, Planned Parenthood received criticism for “celebrating” abortion with their “Chili for Choice” event at a Kansas church. Other events from abortion advocates included a Taco and Beer challenge, “Rock and Roe,” and luncheons. But just months later, in the summer of 2015, video evidence from the Center for Medical Progress showed America the depths of Planned Parenthood’s and the abortion industry’s depravity – actual bodies of babies inside glass dishes, dismembered and sold for parts.

And, yet, abortion advocates celebrate.
