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.

Standing up against the barrage of pro-abortion propaganda to use Zika virus as a reason to tear down protective abortion laws

There is nothing–nothing wonderful, nothing tragic, and nothing in-between–that the Abortion Lobby will not attempt to exploit to further its ever-expanding death agenda.

By now we probably all know that the Zika virus is spread by a particular mosquito. Ordinarily the symptoms are relatively mild but with pregnant women it has been linked to a rise in the number of babies born with microcephaly–abnormally small heads and incomplete brain development.

The range of microcephaly, like any neurological disorder, ranges from relatively mild to severe.

Today, for only the fourth time ever, the World Health Organization declared a public health emergency of international concern.

So what is notorious online abortion service Women On Web offering? Money to develop a vaccine? Of course not.

For women who are nine weeks pregnant or less “free abortion medication to women in the Zika virus zone.”
