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.

Reince Preibus, Trump’s choice to be his Chief of Staff
As you would expect, when President-elect Donald Trump announced yesterday he had chosen Reince Priebus to fill the all-important role of chief of staff, I asked the pro-lifers who would know Priebus best: Wisconsin Right to Life. Here’s what Heather Weininger, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life, told NRL News Today:

Reince Priebus is a true friend to all of us in the pro-life movement. Even from his earliest days in Wisconsin politics, Reince has always been, and always will be, on the side of those who are the most vulnerable.

While his behind-the-scenes pro-life efforts too often go unnoticed, his influence in Republican politics has markedly increased the strength of his party’s pro-life position. Reince, as chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, stayed firm and true to his state party’s pro-life platform. Then, as the head of the Republican National Committee, Reince worked hard to ensure his party’s national platform became the most pro-life it has ever been in the history of the Republican party.

Reince has never shied away from his firm belief in the right to life. We are thrilled that we will have a Wisconsinite working in the White House to fight for the most basic and fundamental human right, life.”
