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.

He is in a coma and has a mysterious, undiagnosed disease.  The UK hospital wants to force Alfie off life support but the parents say they believe it's their "duty, devotion, and job to investigate all avenues of care" for their son, Alfie Evans.  The hospital told them to get lawyers because they want to pull Alfie's life support. His parents are hoping to find a neurologist who can help Alfie.

He is currently intubated and has a ventilator helping him to [breathe], but is also seen by doctors and family taking breaths himself. He has come off life support three times and shown he can manage a maximum of 13 days without the ventilator.
