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.

Another big drop in U.S. abortions!

Abortion numbers have been falling sharply almost every year since 1990. Each of those decreases represents thousands of unborn babies whose lives have been saved.

But that life-saving shift didn’t just happen by itself. Each of those decreases also represents the support so many of you have given to the Right to Life movement so we can save innocent lives.

Last week, we received more good news. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reported another 5% drop in abortions between 2012 and 2013. Abortion statistics are always reported years after the fact, and the CDC numbers don’t include data from every state.

But comparing previous CDC data to the new report suggests there were tens of thousands fewer abortions in 2013 overall than the year before, which continues the life-affirming trend of the past 20+ years!
