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.

In new undercover video, Planned Parenthood abortionist reveals extraction techniques

Wednesday, the Center for Medical Progress released an undercover video taken at a Planned Parenthood networking event in which an abortionist vividly describes her technique of ending the lives of unborn babies at up to six months in their mother's wombs.

In a 12-minute long portion of a 27 minute long unedited conversation, Planned Parenthood Arizona's Medical Director Dr. DeShawn Taylor goes into detail about how she dismembers unborn babies so that her staff isn't upset when the extractions are intact, and a baby is easily identifiable.

This video was released despite David Daleiden and associate Sandra Merritt being charged Tuesday in California with 15 felonies for falsely identifying themselves as purchasers of body parts for a bio-tech company. The charges say they secretly recorded themselves and stole documents from a technology firm.
