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.

House passes amendment granting permanent resident status to Charlie Gard and his family

Charlie Gard and Family
Supporters of Connie Yates and Chris Gard continue to make it possible for the hospital that is refusing to allow them to move their son to the United States for experimental therapy to gracefully retreat from its position that Charlie Gard should be “allowed to die with dignity.”

Pro-life Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.) tweeted out

“We just passed amendment that grants permanent resident status to #CharlieGard and family so Charlie can get the medical treatment he needs.”

If the presiding Justice Nicholas Francis, will allow Connie and Chris to move Charlie out of the Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), this means Charlie will receive the nucleoside therapy Dr. Michio Hirano believes can help their critically ill, nearly 11-month-old child.
