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.

Planned Parenthood VP calls Pro-Life politicians the “4 horsemen of the anti-abortion apocalypse”

Planned Parenthood was out in full force at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. In their typical tactless fashion, the abortion activists were busy distributing “protect yourself from Trump” condoms to passers-by. The message: Donald Trump wants to “take away your rights.”

That message was echoed by Planned Parenthood’s vice president, Dawn Laguens, when she told liberal media pundit Tammy Haddad that Trump was no friend of the “reproductive rights” crowd.

Per the abortion group’s typical name-calling, Laguens referred to Pro-Life politicians Marco Rubio, Mike Pence, Ted Cruz, and Scott Walker as the “4 horsemen of the anti-abortion apocalypse.” She also called the group the “anti-abortion squad.”

Laguens is afraid that as president, Trump will nominate Pro-Life justices to the Supreme Court of the United States, which would be a boon to Pro-Life legislation. On the other hand, if Planned Parenthood’s heavily-funded candidate (Clinton) is elected, abortion zealots are virtually guaranteed to own the Supreme Court for the foreseeable future.
