HIGHLAND PARK, Ill., Oct. 19 /Christian Newswire/ -- On Saturday, October 20th the Thomas More Society, Pro-Life Law Center, will be celebrating the beginning of their 10th anniversary with a benefit gala at Exmoor Country Club at 700 Vine Avenue in Highland Park, Illinois. The event will begin at 6:00 PM (dinner at 7:30) and will feature Keynote Speaker Hadley Arkes. Arkes is the Edward N. Ney Professor of Jurisprudence and American Institutions at Amherst College and was the main architect of the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act that was signed into law by President Bush. Norma McCorvey, "Jane Roe" of the landmark Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court case, will be attending the benefit as well.
The Thomas More Society of Chicago is a non-profit, public interest law firm founded in 1997 and incorporated in 1998, under the leadership of President and Chief Counsel Tom Brejcha. Brejcha and Thomas More have made recent headlines for providing the legal counsel for the Fox Valley Families Against Planned Parenthood and the Pro-Life Action League, in their fight to prevent the opening of the nation's largest Planned Parenthood facility in Aurora, IL. However, their recent cases are not the only headlines they have made. The organization has been at the forefront of pro-life causes since its inception, providing the defense for pro-life leaders in the infamous national class action suit, NOW vs. Scheidler. Though it took 21 years and an unprecedented three trips to the U.S. Supreme Court, they won that case earlier this year.
"We have seen many victories over the past decade and we will be celebrating those victories on Saturday night," states Brejcha. "Whether fighting the atrocities of abortion, careless reproductive technology or the onslaught of government endorsed euthanasia, the Thomas More Society will continue to fight for those who have no voice in the public square."
The benefit will also be attended by leaders and representatives from national pro-life organizations including the Pro-Life Action League, Operation Rescue, Knights of Columbus, Americans United for Life and the American Center for Law and Justice. In addition, Bishop Doran of the Diocese of Rockford, Retired Auxiliary Bishop Goedert of the Archdiocese of Chicago and Carol Crossed, founder of the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum will also be in attendance.
Pictures of the Event will be Available After October 20th. For More Information on the Thomas More Society of Chicago, Please See the Contacts Below.
