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.

Pro-life training in the college classroom

Only one collegiate-level school is offering pro-life courses that could potentially lead to career opportunities in the movement.

The only school, so far, providing formal pro-life training is Oklahoma Wesleyan University in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Scott Klusendorf of Life Training Institute is teaching part of the course work. He says the issue at stake is that America needs a movement of pro-lifers who are professionally trained.

“We need to have them equipped to make a persuasive case in the public square using arguments that resonate with a secular culture,” he tells OneNewsNow. “And if you look at the pro-life movement today, it's led by hardworking, part-time volunteers. To flip the equation, we need equipped pro-lifers who can do this for a living full-time.”
