Petition Filed to the Illinois Supreme Court to Appeal HB40

HB40 Appeal To Illinois Supreme Court Filed.

Peter Breen of the Thomas More Society Law Firm filed an appeal on behave of the plaintiffs to the Illinois Supreme Court regarding HB40.

As you are aware, Lake County Right to Life is one of the plaintiffs in this case.

Background on HB40(a small review)

HB40 amended the Illinois Public Aid Code and required the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services Department to reimburse service providers for the cost of reproductive healthcare, including abortion services, for women eligible for Medicaid.

On April 25, 2017, the Illinois House of Representatives passed HB40. Then on May 10, 2017, the Illinois Senate passed HB40.

We all know that HB40 provides abortion on demand for women on Medicaid paid by the Illinois taxpayers.

We are all aware that Medicaid abortions in Illinois have increased since the law went into effect. Prayers, at this time, are in order. We must pray for the Illinois Supreme Court to accept the case. We must also pray for the Thomas More Society and most especially for Peter Breen.
