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.

Call your U.S. senators and urge them to support the Graham-Cassidy health care reform bill!
National Right to Life strongly supports this legislation, which is known as the Graham-Cassidy Amendment to H.R. 1628. This bill would repeal the worst elements of Obamacare, including a rollback of Obamacare’s federal subsidies to health plans that pay for elective abortion. The bill would also block most federal funding for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.
A razer-close vote is expected. Indeed, the bill may pass or fail by a single vote.
Click here to enter your zip code into the “Call Now” box. You will then be shown the appropriate phone number to reach the office of one of your two U.S. senators, along with short talking points that you can refer to when the senator’s staff person answers. After you finish delivering your short message in favor of the Graham-Cassidy Amendment, you’ll have the option to send National Right to Life a short “feedback” report about your call. You will then be shown the phone number for your second U.S. senator, and will repeat the process. Both calls can be placed in a matter of a few minutes.
Please act today! Under Senate rules, the deadline for this bill to pass or die is September 30. This is the last chance this year, and probably for years to come, to replace Obamacare and defund Planned Parenthood!
