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.

Say what? Everybody's happy with SCOTUS decision?

How is it possible that both sides are declaring victory in Monday's move by the Supreme Court to send the ObamaCare contraceptive mandate dispute back down to the lower courts?

The White House, which authored the contraceptive mandate, was thrilled with the ruling. "We obviously were pleased with the announcement from the Supreme Court today," said White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

Meanwhile, Sister Constance Viet of Little Sisters of the Poor, which opposed the mandate, told FOX News she was equally pleased. "Today was a very good day, and we're very happy with the result," she stated.

Is it possible the two sides have stumbled into a legitimate compromise?
