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.

Abortion-Expanding Obamacare to Remain Law for Now

US Senate
In the early hours of Friday morning, in a stunning blow, 3 Republican Senators, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), Sen. Murkowski (R-Ak), and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), joined with all of the Democrats ending the current attempt to move away from the abortion-expanding Obama Health Care law.

The so-called “skinny bill” would have defunded abortion giant Planned Parenthood for one year and would likely have gone to conference where further pro-life modifications might have been made.

While there have been numerous stops and starts, Congressional Leadership and the White House have both signaled that they would like to move on to other items for the short term.
