The Thomas More Society’s efforts to thwart another abortion law, which “forces pregnancy physicians to promote abortion,” has become a victory. Attorney Thomas Olp “told the CookCounty Recordthat his legal team and the plaintiffs are ‘very happy’ with the injunction. He said that the plaintiffs agree that the law does, in fact, violate the free speech of physicians who have pro-life viewpoints.”
When Illinois Governor Rauner signed abortion legislation, the Thomas More Society did not remain silent, but spoke the truth in the face of that challenging news. Special Counsel Peter Breen, who is now a member of the Illinois House of Representatives, proclaimed his opposition to the Governor’s decision, and was quoted on PBS’s WTTW-TV and in the Journal Star.
