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.

Pro-lifers brave blizzard at March for Life

Tens of thousands of pro-life activists defied freezing temperatures and the approach of a gigantic snowstorm to join in the 43rd March for Life in Washington, DC, on January 22.

The annual march, held on the anniversary of the notorious Roe v. Wade decision that struck down laws against abortion, was held despite predictions that an approaching blizzard would bring two feet of snow to the area. The snow began to fall as the participants marched toward the Supreme Court building.

With airports shutting down and highways quickly becoming impassible, thousands of the pro-lifers who traveled to Washington for the march faced the likelihood that they would be stranded in the city for the weekend-- in many cases without a place to stay. Organizers of the March for Life had urged people to be cautious about traveling to the city in light of the dire forecasts, but had vowed that the march would be held regardless of weather conditions.
