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.

It happened at the Globes, New and, now, the Oscars: America’s largest abortion provider is becoming a “fashion statement.” And, in addition to entertainment news and women’s magazines, the broadcast networks are beginning to notice the trend.

Following Sunday evening’s 89th Academy Awards ceremony, NBC anchor Natalie Morales reported on the red carpet “glitz and the glamour” that “was also mixed with politics.”

“Along with fashion statements,” Morales stressed Monday during Today, “there were plenty of political statements.” For proof, she pointed to La La Land actress Emma Stone’s support of Planned Parenthood.

“Emma Stone wore a gold Planned Parenthood pin on her golden gown,” she said, before noting additional Hollywood names bolstering other organizations like GLAAD and the ACLU with fashion choices.
