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.

Court discovers abortion funding in U.S. Constitution
In Colorado, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of abortion funding after Utah Gov. Gary Herbert cut off state funds going to Planned Parenthood.
Not only did the court rule against Herbert, in favor of the abortion giant, but it suggested that denying taxpayers' funds violates the Constitution.
The appeals court decided "there's a good chance the governor's order violated the group's constitutional rights," The Associated Press, citing the court order, reported Wednesday.
American Family Association public policy analyst Abe Hamilton says the legal system has entered a "post-constitutional era, where the judiciary has practically abandoned all pretense of any types of tethering to the Constitution."
No corporation or non-profit has a constitutional right to tax dollars, Hamilton points out.
