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.

US Senate votes to NOT defund Planned Parenthood, repeal Obamacare

U.S. Senate voted 55 to 45 to reject the repealing of Obamacare
Yesterday, the U.S. Senate voted 55 to 45 to reject the repealing of Obamacare and defunding of Planned Parenthood.  The vote was on an amendment to the American Healthcare Act (AHCA) that would swap the AHCA with a simple repeal of Obamacare. The AHCA outlines some provisions "replacing" Obamacare.

The vote doesn't mean that the Senate still won't end up repealing (and possibly replacing) Obamacare and defunding Planned Parenthood. The process of Senate debate over the AHCA – and introductions of various amendments to it – will carry on throughout the week. However, today's vote showed which Republicans flip-flopped on their opposition to Obamacare.
