Kuhar et al. v. City of Philadelphia et al.

Case Start Date:
Court Status

The City of Philadelphia and its mayor have been sued for giving away half a million taxpayer dollars to a group which exists solely to pay for abortions in Pennsylvania. Thomas More Society attorneys are representing citizens in the lawsuit against the City of Philadelphia, its Mayor James Kenney, Treasurer Jaqueline Dunn, and Controller Rebecca Rhynhart.

The lawsuit asks the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas to enjoin the city and its officials from transferring the funds to the Abortion Liberation Fund of PA. Philadelphia’s actions are in direct violation of Pennsylvania’s prohibition against the use of public funds appropriated by the Commonwealth for the performance of abortion.

The City of Philadelphia annually receives billions of dollars of Commonwealth funds and/or Federal funds which are appropriated by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
