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.

Under pressure, British NHS finally agrees to pay for surgery for toddler with exceedingly rare heart condition

Olivier Cameron will go to Boston’s Children’s Hospital

Oliver Cameron
In an unanticipated turn of events, last night the British National Health Service (NHS) finally agreed to pay for seven-month-old Oliver Cameron to go to Boston’s Children’s Hospital for surgery to address his extremely rare heart tumor. The son of Tim and Lydia Cameron will be moved after his first birthday (to give him the best chances post-surgery) or earlier if his condition worsens.

“An NHS spokesperson denied there had been a U-turn in Oliver’s case,” The Mirror reported. Really?

The NHS’s willingness to pay the estimated $194,000 comes less than two weeks after Great Ormond Street Hospital denied the parents of Charlie Gard the opportunity to take Charlie to New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center for experimental therapy. Charlie died July 28 when his ventilator was disconnected.
