Lila Rose

Founder and President of Live Action

“In my mission to expose Planned Parenthood through undercover tactics, I rely on Tom Brejcha of the Thomas More Society for legal advice. He’s the Number One pro-life attorney in America and I’m praying you’ll support the Thomas More Society!”

 

David Bereit

Co-Founder and National Director of 40 Days for Life

“Thanks to the help of Tom Brejcha and Peter Breen of the Thomas More Society, thousands of babies’ lives have been spared from abortion through 40 Days for Life. Whenever local government officials harass, threaten, and trample on the rights of our prayer warriors, we immediately call Thomas More Society, knowing they’ll jump into action and get results. Please send the Chicago-based Thomas More Society your most generous gift today!”

Paul Wieland and family

Paul Wieland

Missouri State Senator

“My wife Terri and I are extremely grateful to the legal team at the Thomas More Society. With their support we were able to challenge the Federal Government specifically the provisions of the Affordable Care Act that trampled our rights as parents and devout Catholics.

“The dedication, passion and talent of the Thomas More Society enabled us to be successful in this endeavor. Not only did this reaffirm our rights as parents, but set a great example to our children that our faith is something worth fighting for.

“We know this monumental achievement would not have happened without the involvement of the Thomas More Society.”

Executive Director, Students for Life of America

“Thanks to the attorneys at the Thomas More Society, high school student Maddie Sutherland was able to start her pro-life club within a matter of days of the pro-life lawyers getting involved. We are so grateful for their excellent counsel and work!”

Russ Amerling - Choose Life America

Russell E. Amerling

CEO & President, Choose Life America, Inc.

“In this world it is sometimes difficult to find folks willing to pour their heart, soul and resources into another person’s ministry. But that is exactly what Thomas Brejcha has done for Choose Life America, Inc. And not just one time, but consistently over the whole eighteen years we have been working to get the Choose Life license plate in every state. The Thomas More Society worked on the effort to get the Choose Life license plate approved in Illinois and even took the case all the way to the US Supreme Court. Most recently he and his staff wrote an Amicus Brief for Choose Life America, Inc. and several other organizations, in a case that is now awaiting a ruling June 2015 that could have a tremendous effect upon our continued efforts with the Choose Life license plate nationally.

“This is truly an organization worth of your prayers and support.”

Executive Director,  Sidewalk Advocates for Life

“Professional, precise, prompt, caring, knowledgeable and qualified — this is how we have experienced the legal counsel of the Thomas More Society.  Their attorneys have given quality legal counsel to our sidewalk counselors since the inception of our organization, enabling them to more effectively change hearts and save lives while acting within the confines of their First Amendment rights.  We are truly grateful!”

Bishop Conlon

Bishop R. Daniel Conlon

Catholic Diocese of Joliet in Illinois

“I would sincerely like to thank the attorneys and staff of the Thomas More Society for working diligently on our Catholic Charities case on a pro-bono basis. The Society offers a powerful line of defense.”

Eric Scheidler

Eric Scheidler

Executive Director of the Pro-Life Action League

“Tom Brejcha of the Chicago-based Thomas More Society defended my father, Joe Scheidler, and the Pro-Life Action League against the most vicious federal lawsuit ever filed by the abortion industry. Tom won that case before the U.S. Supreme Court by a vote of 8 to zero! And now he’s defending me in a monumental case that could nail Planned Parenthood’s hide to the wall. Your tax-deductible gift to the Thomas More Society will help Tom defend pro-lifers on the front line of the battle.”

Brian Westbrook

Brian Westbrook

Executive Director of Coalition for Life St. Louis

“I can’t thank the Thomas More Society enough for their support as we went to trial for the fraudulent charges of ‘False Advertising’ for a sign that read ‘FREE Pregnancy Tests and Ultrasounds.’  Tom Brejcha, along with his support of our local attorney, was pivotal with strong constitutional arguments that protect all of our freedoms.  After hearing Tom’s arguments the judge was quickly convinced of this attack on our First Amendment Rights and immediately dismissed the case.”

Kathy Forck - better resolution

Kathy Forck

Columbia 40 Days for Life Co-Campaign Director

“When I gave a cold water bottle to a Stericycle truck driver as he was exiting the Columbia, MO, Planned Parenthood driveway in July of 2012, I was falsely charged with trespass. I was speedily found guilty in the municipal court which could have landed me 6 months in jail and a hefty fine.  My appeal, finally heard in July of 2014, was represented by Thomas More attorneys Thomas Brejcha and special counsel Daniel Baker.  The judge sternly dropped the charges and I was acquitted.  Thank you, Thomas More Society and in particular Tom and Daniel! We in the prolife movement know that you have our backs and that ALL cases are important to you!”

Paula Emmerth

Executive Director, Peter’s Net

“Thomas More Society is the absolute best, and our organization simply would cease to exist without them! Peter’s Net is a start-up evangelization group which spreads the gospel and pro-life message at county fairs.  When even one complaint about our message is made, we get kicked out. Tom Brejcha, Peter Breen and the whole group at Thomas More is there to the rescue on the spot! They fight our battle with a lot of hard work and expense so that we can focus on our message.  They have been victorious for us every time and we can keep stepping out in confidence with a bold message that is so greatly needed, because of them.”

Thank you for making an eternal difference. Praying you know what a blessing you all are.”

Co-Founder and Campaign Director of 40 Days for Life

“Our heartfelt gratitude extends to the Society for their unparalleled legal counsel to our local campaigns, our national campaign, and our entire pro-life movement to end abortion. Thank God for all of your work! Our rights would be trampled on without your courageous and effective work in America.”

Steve Karlen

Steve Karlen

Director of North American Outreach, 40 Days for Life

“I want to thank the Thomas More Society for the absolutely instrumental role that you have played in our work. It is daunting to face off against Planned Parenthood and its money, its high-powered lobbyists, and its army of lawyers. Thomas More Society, however, protects the rights of 40 Days for Life leaders and participants to peacefully assemble and pray outside abortion facilities. Thank you so very much for acting quickly and securing great victories. Your defense of our leaders and participants is a blessing to us all!”

“In short, our work would not be possible without you.”
