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.

Amid continued post-election violence across the U.S. in response to Hillary Clinton’s failed bid for the presidency, one of the abortion providers caught on tape last year discussing baby body parts procurement in the Planned Parenthood fetal tissue trafficking scandal has said abortionists will break the law if necessary to keep performing abortions.

The abortion lobby has been sounding the alarm for a possible judicial and legislative attack on the lucrative procedure since Donald Trump’s upset victory over Clinton last week. Planned Parenthood called for donations and second trimester abortion doctor Lisa Hope Harris told a science and technology periodical that while abortionists are worried about the potential for overturning Roe v. Wade in a Trump administration, because of “conscience” they would be willing to keep performing the procedure even if it became against the law.
