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.

'Rolling abortionist' in heaps of trouble

Abortionist James Pendergraft
James Pendergraft's medical license has been suspended five times. Operation Rescue's Cheryl Sullenger says the abortionist was arrested in October 2015 for operating a home abortion service from his van in South Carolina.

"That's a problem for several reasons," the pro-life explains. "One, he's not even licensed to practice [medicine] in South Carolina – and he was also caught in possession of several illegal narcotics that were used to sedate women for abortions. He was also caught with marijuana and LSD."

Arresting officers also found instruments used to terminate preborn babies and containers of aborted babies. He has been indicted on ten charges. His trial is expected to begin later this week.
