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.

Will 9th Circuit 'go liberal' on Daleiden?

Despite a lower-court ruling barring him from doing it, David Daleiden remains hopeful he will be able to release more undercover videos of abortion advocates discussing the harvesting and sale of aborted babies' body parts.

Since last summer Daleiden has released a series of "sting" videos, mostly of Planned Parenthood officials harvesting and discussing the sale of body parts from aborted babies. A federal judge in San Francisco has made permanent an injunction prohibiting Daleiden and his Center for Medical Progress from releasing videos featuring members of the National Abortion Federation. The NAF is suggesting the release could cause irreparable harm.

OneNewsNow talked with attorney Alexandra Snyder of Life Legal Defense Foundation, who says she's disappointed, but not surprised with the ruling. The impact, she says, is that Daleiden's speech "is still being censored."
