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.

Actress Sally Field: ‘I Won’t Stay Silent’ on abortion

While much of the Tony Awards Ceremony was focused at either Trump or the actual Broadway plays, one of the nominees used the event as a reason to show her “celebration of Planned Parenthood.” Huffington Post reporter Jenavieve Hatch gushed over the star’s attempt to make her public appearance political.

Sally Field, nominated for Best Leading Actress for her role in The Glass Menagerie, posted a picture of herself sporting a Planned Parenthood pin on her outfit.

And as if that wasn’t enough, she captioned her photo with: “Sick of hearing actors talk re politics? 2 bad I won’t stay silent while politicians attack our rights. Proud to #StandwithPP.”
