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.

Numerous Planned Parenthood closures not missed

Planned Parenthood Clinic
President Donald Trump has submitted his proposed $4.1 trillion budget to the United States Congress, part of which denies federal funds to organizations that provide abortions – including Planned Parenthood. It calls for sending those dollars to the more than 10,000 federally qualified medical centers located across the country that do not provide abortions.

As a recognized expert on Planned Parenthood, Jim Sedlak of the American Life League told OneNewsNow that women living in poverty actually do not miss the abortion clinics – evidence that was provided last week by the nation's largest abortion provider:  “These qualified health centers provide a wide range of services – a lot more women services than Planned Parenthood does – and so they're able to cover not only what Planned Parenthood does, but they're able to cover a huge range of services, including providing primary care … which Planned Parenthood does not do,” Sedlak explained.

The massive abortion business has closed down more than 300 clinics in the past two decades and has provided fewer health services – while increasing abortion.
