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.

Pro-life legislation hangs in the balance

During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump vowed that he would sign the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to protect the sanctity of human life.

Mallory Quigley, who serves with the Susan B. Anthony List, stated that voters are evidently in agreement with Trump's pro-life view. A large majority of Millennials, African Americans and Hispanics also support the pro-life proposal. Last year, the bill passed the House, but needed 60 votes in the Senate to move forward.

“Susan B. Anthony List put out the list of a new survey finding that a majority of voters – women in higher numbers than men – support the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” Quigley informed. “This is legislation that limits abortion after five months, which of course, is beyond halfway through pregnancy – and it's at a point at which the unborn child demonstrably feels pain.”
