Website Review: Thomas More Society

A review based on: http://www.thomasmoresociety.org

Description

Founded in 1997, the Thomas More Society, Pro-Life Law Center, is a not-for-profit, public interest law firm based in Chicago that is dedicated to fighting for the rights and dignity of all human life. The Society vigorously defends clients in state and federal courtrooms around the country, addressing vital issues across the pro-life spectrum, including pregnancy discrimination, end-of-life health care, the right of conscientious objection for medical workers, and freedom of speech for peaceable nonviolent protest.

The Thomas More Society successfully defended Joe Scheidler against the National Organization of Women's RICO suit. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously on February 28, 2007 that the RICO statute was improperly used against Scheidler and other pro-life activists.

The resources — legal briefs — on the site are directed toward attorneys defending pro-lifers and for individuals who believe their rights as citizens are being denied because of their pro-life stance.
