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.

New legal dispute between Charlie Gard’s parents, hospital

Great Ormond Street Hospital
A British court is expected to settle a new legal dispute between Charlie Gard’s parents and the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.

On July 24, the parents withdrew their appeal for permission to try experimental treatment for their child after concluding that any realistic chance of successful treatment had passed. They have asked that they be allowed to bring their child home during his final days.

The hospital, however, insists that it is “not practical to provide the level of life-support treatment to Charlie at the couple’s London home,” according to a BBC report, as a ventilator cannot fit through the front door. The hospital seeks to place the infant in a hospice.
