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.

Life Chain
Last year, thousands took part in 25,000 Life Chains in 1,600 cities and towns across Canada and the U.S.  October 1 is Life Chain Sunday, and the 30th anniversary of this unique annual pro-life witness.

The National Right to Life Committee calculated that 59,115,995 babies have been killed by abortion since the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v Wade decision legalizing abortion in the United States. NRLC estimated that 926,000 babies were killed in utero in the U.S. in 2015 to 2016.

Royce Dunn, national director of National Life Chain Sunday 2017 stated, “We’re trusting that National Life Sunday 2017 will proved a strong witness on the sidewalks of America and Canada.”
