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.

A new report released by the Guttmacher Institute found that in 2014, for the first time since 1975, the annual number of abortions dropped below one million.

“Abortion Incidence and Service Availability in the United States, 2014” is the result of the Guttmacher Institute’s latest survey of 1,671 abortion clinics, hospitals, and private physicians.

The report found that the number of abortions performed in the U.S. in 2014 dropped to 926,190, the lowest figure in thirty years, and was the first time the total has dropped below million a year since 1975.
