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.

Springfield Planned Parenthood to provide surgical abortions

Beginning Thursday, August 4th, 2016 Planned Parenthood in Springfield is offering surgical abortions.  This new service is igniting local pro-lifers and Springfield Right to Life.

“I think it’s a sad day for Springfield,” Tim Moore president of Springfield Right to Life said.

At this location, Planned Parenthood has only offered “medication abortions” since 2010 in which patients take one pill (RU486) at Planned Parenthood and a second pill at home to kill and miscarry the unborn child.

Pregnant adolescents and women up to 18 weeks gestation will have to make an appointment to receive this "service".  Surgical abortions can take up to a few hours where two lives go in and only one comes out alive if there are no complications.
