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.

Late last month, Puerto Rican rapper Wisin (Juan Luis Morera Luna) took to social media to announce the passing of his one-month-old daughter, Victoria. Victoria was diagnosed in utero with Trisomy 13, a terminal chromosomal abnormality. Many parents who receive trisomy diagnoses are pressured to abort their children, and Wisin and his wife, Yomaira, were no exception.

In a statement shared by Puerto Rican media, Yomaira explained that aborting their daughter was never an option:

“Victoria has fulfilled every single one of her purposes since the day that we found out about her,” Yomaira said. “We give thanks to God for our decision to have her without caring what would happen, because we know that God knows what is best.”
