The Thomas More Society is a not-for-profit, national public interest law firm dedicated to restoring respect in law for life, family, and religious liberty. Based in Chicago, the Thomas More Society defends and fosters support for these causes by providing high quality pro bono legal services from local trial courts all the way to the United States Supreme Court.
The pro-life cause has long included prayerful protests as a stand against abortion. Those actions might have become illegal if not for a single case, NOW v. Scheidler, fought over nearly 30 years and involving three visits to the U.S. Supreme Court. This documentary film tells the dramatic story of a man who was sued by the entire abortion industry, the lawyer who defended him in this defining case, and the founding of the Thomas More Society, a not-for-profit, national public interest law firm dedicated to restoring respect in law for life, family, and religious liberty. This is a trailer depicting highlights of a featured documentary releasing March 2021.
