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.

In March of 2009, during her first months as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton addressed the Planned Parenthood Federation of America Awards Gala and spoke of her vision for the world which included making it more “progressive,” code word for laws allowing broad access to abortion. She is shown here with PPFA President Cecile Richards.

Pro-abortion agitators are again using September 28 as the so-called Global Day of Access for Safe & Legal Abortion promoting access to abortion with staged activities in select cities around the world and online, #Sept28.

Organized by the International Campaign for Women’s Right to Safe Abortion, affiliated NGOs [Non-Governmental Agencies] have planned events to influence policy makers and as they call for “universal access to safe abortion” and for “the decriminalization of abortion around the world” with a “moratorium on prosecutions of women who have had abortions and safe abortion providers.”
