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.

Abortion: Not just a women's issue

"Men need to accept responsibility for the fact that it is our gender that actually promoted and pushed abortion in America," Brian Fisher, CEO and president of Human Coalition tells OneNewsNow, "and we are still the ones that 'profit from it,' in that sexually explicit men can sleep with whomever they want and then leave that relationship unencumbered by the responsibilities of the child."

Abortion - Ultimate Exploitation (book cover)Human Coalition works with thousands of women in several major cities each year, and most of them have been impregnated and deserted by the father. Fisher believes that trend can be reversed. He addresses the issue at length in his book, Abortion: The Ultimate Exploitation of Women.

"It takes character to step up and be a man and fight the culture on this," he says, "because obviously the culture believes that this is primarily a women's issue."
