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.

Hologram ultrasounds and the future of crisis pregnancy work

The tech blog The Verge recently profiled the future of computer displays beyond the latest VR (virtual reality) and AR (augmented reality) headsets by looking at a prototype hologram display.

A virtual reality headset covers your eyes and projects a computer-generated world (or a specially filmed movie) around you that gives you the feeling that “you are there” and allows you to interact with it.

Augmented reality is different in that the display you wear in front of your eyes actually shows you the world around you, but overlays it with projected images or information that seem like they’re part of this world.

But holograms, as envisioned by the hologram display, would go a step further to create the representation of something three dimensional right in front of you. You’re probably asking yourself what this has to do with the cause for Life?

As you can see from the image above, The Verge illustrated a version of their story with a drawing depicting a 3D hologram ultrasound, and referred in their article to the possibility that the technology could be used to allow expectant mothers to “view an image of their developing baby.”
