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.

Want to Elect a Pro-Life President? Here’s what NOT to do.

On November 8, either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will be elected President. One of them will decide abortion policies for many years to come.

Nearly eight years of Obama’s presidency has already been devastating. The Obama presidency brought us two new pro-abortion Supreme Court justices, a healthcare law that expands abortion and threatens the vulnerable, and vows to veto pro-life legislation, including a bill that would protect unborn babies 20 weeks and older from painful late abortions, and a bill that would defund abortion providers.

We cannot afford four – let alone eight – more years of a president that does not value the right to life.

Hillary Clinton supports unlimited abortion, and she wants to force Americans to pay for it. In contrast, Donald Trump opposes abortion, and he opposes using your tax dollars to pay for abortion.

As pro-lifers, our goal must be to elect a president who will protect lives.

To achieve our goal, we have to be strategic. There are a number of ways we can actually defeat a pro-life candidate. For the sake of the babies, we cannot afford to make these mistakes in 2016.
