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.

November election a matter of life and death

The presidential candidates are running on their parties' platforms -- Republicans pro-life and Democrats strongly pro-abortion. While Democrats promise more jobs, the party supports the killing of about a million children a year through abortion.

Terry Beatley of the Hosea Initiative tells OneNewsNow that is with complete disregard for the scars women experience because of abortion.

"You give that woman anywhere from 5 to 10 years, when she's now really coming to terms with the fact that she killed a child 5 to 10 years ago, and then the reality of women who have depression, drug abuse, alcohol abuse because they're trying to cover up their pain," Beatley notes.

She says people need to learn the platforms of both parties and understand that when the November election comes, the voters who stay home and choose not to vote will be making a deadly decision.
