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.

Pro-life Kellyanne Conway picked to manage Trump campaign

When Donald Trump named Kellyanne Conway his new campaign manager, it is a testimony to the bias against the Trump campaign that it went virtually unnoticed that she was the first female to head a major presidential campaign

But what did not go unnoticed by pro-lifers is that a movement pro-lifer, someone who has labored in the trenches for decades on behalf of unborn babies, someone who in the past has polled for National Right to Life, is now in charge of Mr. Trump’s campaign.

“Kellyanne is very, very smart and without question more knowledgeable about public opinion on abortion than any other pollster,” said David. N. O’Steen, Ph.D., executive director of National Right to Life. “She will provide Trump with savvy insight and advice as he runs against the most pro-abortion presidential candidate ever in Hillary Clinton, and a media establishment that is determined to elect her.”

In addition to having addressed the National Right to Life board of directors, Mrs. Conway delivered a general session speech at the 2006 National Right to Life convention. I remember her comments vividly because she patiently explained what happens when people are asked honest questions about abortion, not questions geared to inflate the “pro-choice” response: “83% of those surveyed want some kind of restriction on the unfettered access to abortion,” was her conclusion.
