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.

Pro-lifers 'socking it' to members of Congress

Sockit2PP Truck
Students for Life has launched its "Sockit2PP Truck Tour." Executive director Kristan Hawkins says they will be busy selling the idea in key states.

"We're going to be touring the country with baby socks this fall, demanding that Congress uphold their promises to defund Planned Parenthood," she explains. "We have purchased a truck [and] stuffed it with 328,348 baby socks – every single sock representing one child who will be aborted this year by Planned Parenthood, which we fund with our tax dollars."

The campaign kicked off this week in Washington, DC, with subsequent stops planned in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Kentucky, and West Virginia – and ending up back in the nation's capital again on Saturday, September 23. The group hopes to impress upon U.S. senators representing those states the need to strip the abortion-provider of federal funding. After the tour, the socks will be divided as they head to 90 college campuses this fall.
