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.

New curriculum arms churches for pro-life ministry

Care Net, one of the nation's largest networks of pro-life pregnancy centers, has launched a curriculum for churches called “Making Life Disciples.” The idea behind it is to equip church congregations to minister to women and men considering abortion. Mary Chapman is a spokesperson for Care Net.

“Just in Los Angeles, California, we overlaid one denomination of churches and saw that churches overwhelmed the presence of abortion clinics in that area,” she says. “There are our 1,100 centers, plus all others, for approximately 2,500 pregnancy centers in the nation – however, there are 350,000 churches.”

And she says a national survey shows another solid reason why people in the church need to be equipped to minister to abortion-minded women.
