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.

Here’s a story that will defy the liberal media’s abortion agenda: A reality TV star is crediting God for the strength to keep her baby – in a both heartbreaking and heartwarming story.

Lifetime’s Knocked Up docu-series debuted Tuesday, December 6. The show follows three “carefree” and happily single women whose “careers are just about to take off” when they become pregnant after “one night of fun.” But the one of three stars has already revealed her story on social media: her decision to save her baby’s life against all odds.

In the show description, Lifetime introduced its audience to Audra:

After 10 years of wild partying, 32 year-old Audra had cleaned up her act, finding sobriety and the church. But after a night spent with an old friend results in an unexpected pregnancy, her world is about to change again. Despite her mom’s disapproval and the father’s refusal to be involved, Audra decides to raise the baby on her own.
