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.

“Honey… we’re pregnant”

The woman is looking expectantly at the pregnancy test kit and, wham, her eyes light up and she shouts out the window to her husband who is in the back yard, “Honey… we’re pregnant.”

Such is the opening of—yes—a commercial, in this instance for Huggies. But it is beautifully done, beginning with the shock/awe/delight that runs across the woman’s face when she discovers she is going to have a baby.

The excited back and forth between the couple is a real delight and a wonderful pro-life educational tutorial.
