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.

Hey docs, are you healers or death dealers?
Despite some reports coming from its recent convention in Chicago, the American Medical Association ethics standards stand against participation in assisted suicide.
Dr. Thomas Eppes of Forrest, Virginia, a member of the Christian Medical Association, was a Virginia delegate to the convention. He tells OneNewsNow that AMA members actually approved an "eloquently stated position" that the physician is a healer.
"And that if you're in the business of doing that type of thing," says Eppes, referring to assisted suicide, "you're violating the code of ethics."
