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.

Churches lag on pro-life ministry

Students for Life's Institute for Pro-Life Advancement has released a new poll on discussing abortion within the church. Spokesperson Lisa Stover tells OneNewsNow a Gallup Poll found that 52 percent of women who have an abortion self-identify as Christians.

“And then in 2015 LifeWay Research found the number to be close to 70 percent, and they also found that 76 percent of those active, church-going women said that their church had no influence on their decision to abort,” she says. “And so this really shows that there's something lacking in our churches today.”

So if Christians attending church are not hearing the pro-life message and feel they have nowhere to turn within the church, she says, they tend to seek abortions.
