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.

Painfully unfunny doesn’t keep NARAL from running “Comedians in Cars Getting Abortions”

I have no idea if Jerry Seinfeld has ever talked about abortion, but, regardless, should he should see “Comedians in Cars Getting Abortions,” I am confident he will cringe.

Granted, NARAL is tone-deaf, but are they so lost in space they think doing a Seinfeld rip off will turn abortion into a joke? (In recent years, Seinfeld has produced a video series–“Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”– in which he talks with other famous celebrities for 15 to 25 minutes while they are riding around in various snazzy cars.)

The gist of the 6:33 video is that abortions are really difficult to get. Given the setting, presumably California, this is preposterous on its face.



Abortions are “hard to get”? Please. They joke about going to another abortion clinic in a nearby city but since it’s been a month since a famous music festival, it will be “super busy.” It’s harder to get a Prius in California than it is an abortion.

We are dealing with people whose goal in life is to end as many unborn lives as possible.
