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.

House passes No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act

Our Tax Dollar should Nurture Life, NOT fund its destruction
National Right to Life congratulates the House of Representatives for its vote in support of “Making the Hyde Amendment Permanent and Government-Wide No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.” H.R 7 passed by a vote of 238-183, and now goes to the Senate for its consideration.

But didn’t such a measure to permanently prevent taxpayer subsidies for abortion-covering health plans, both in Obamacare and in other federal health benefits programs already pass at least once? It did, indeed, in June 2015.

The difference? All the difference in the world. There is no longer a veto threat from pro-abortion President Barack Obama.
