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.

'Sanctity Sunday' adds another cause to life issue

Sanctity of Human Life Sunday
Sanctity of Human Life Sunday is coming this weekend, when churches are asked to focus on two issues of the life movement.

Life Matters Worldwide is the primary sponsor for the annual event, and LMW president Tom Lothamer says it's a call for the church to pray to end the termination of preborn babies, estimated to be 60 million since abortion was legalized in 1973.

"Some churches unfortunately don't even bring it up but many, many churches do," he says. "And it's through a message, maybe special music, a special testimony - that kind of thing - where they really want to highlight the sanctity of human life as children in the womb are image bearers of God."
