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.

A look inside the pro-abortionists’ unceasing propaganda machine


Pro-abortion propagandists operate in a pincer-like fashion in which the truth is encircled by attackers coming from both sides.

One attack are the “academic studies” which utilize extrapolation, exaggeration, and evasion to “prove” that every pro-life legislative initiative under the sun is counterproductive, at best, cynically motivated, at worse.

The other attack is to dismiss not just a raft of peer-reviewed studies showing that abortion has negative consequences for women (that is to be expected). They also dismiss “embryological and fetal development from information booklets produced by 23 states that require informed consent,” as a recent story at Forbes.com explains.
