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 Sen. Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, and Sen. Marco Rubio finish 1-2-3 in Iowa

Pro-abortionists Clinton and Sanders end in dead-heat

It was worth every minute of a long, long day and night. As you all know by now, the turnout for the Iowa caucuses last night was extremely high (171,000+) with the requisite surprises (there are always surprises in the first in the nation caucus).

Pro-lifers ran the table on the Republican side, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz defeating billionaire businessman Donald Trump 28% to 24%. The big surprise on the GOP side is that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s gamble paid off. His campaign said he had intended to leave early to gear up in New Hampshire, saw a surge coming, and stayed in Iowa. His reward was to finish a strong third with 23%.

On the Democratic side, pro-abortion Hillary Clinton cautiously sort of declared victory last night; as of this morning she is ahead of pro-abortion Democratic Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders by a hair–3/10ths of one percent. Clinton–at one time ahead by 30 points over Sanders in opinion polls–probably put it best when she said she was “breathing a big sigh of relief.”
