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.

Building a Pro-Life Future

From the 2016 National Right to Life Convention...

Grassroots pro-lifers are constant and consistent–educating, working on legislation, working at pregnancy centers, talking to friends and neighbors, working with young people. That faithfulness is making a difference.

During World War II, as you might expect, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill had some dark days, but he didn’t necessarily look at setbacks as defeat. He asked a friend, “Why do we regard history as of the past and forget we are making it?”

We, right now, are making history. We are fighting for what is right, defending the defenseless and speaking up for the voiceless. Future generations will look back on our efforts as a bright light during a very dark period in our nation’s past. We, here today, are making history– building a pro-life future in which all human life will be respected and protected.
