Illinois Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment

ERA PASSED THE ILLINOIS SENATE

On April 11, 2018 the Illinois Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment as Senate Joint Resolution Constitution Amendment 4 (SJRCA4). The fight now goes to the House.

Eight Republican Senators voted for the ERA. Pro-life Illinoisans deserve political leaders who will clearly commit to the protection of innocent unborn children, and who will follow through on that commitment.

While we are disappointed with all 43 Senators who voted for abortion, we are gravely disturbed by those who solicited pro-life support and presented themselves as pro-life but voted for the ERA. Their vote was a vote in opposition to life and will not be ignored. The Illinois Federation for Right to Life PAC, Illinois Citizens for Life PAC, Illinois Family Action PAC, Illinois Family PAC, and Lake County Life PAC will not endorse or support any legislator that casts a vote for such a sweeping pro-abortion piece of legislation as the ERA.

Mother pregnant with 2 babies, not twins



     Angie Cromar was born with a rare condition  called didelphys, which means she has 2 uteruses. It didn't pose a  problem for her previous pregnancies, and the 34-year-old has given  birth to 2 healthy children before.

According to AOLNews.com, July 17:

A UT woman is pregnant with 2 babies, but they're not twins....

    Angie Cromar was born with a rare condition called didelphys, which means she has 2 uteruses. It didn't pose a problem for her previous pregnancies, and the 34-year-old has given birth to 2 healthy children before.

    But this time, she's conceived in both uteruses. During her 1st ultrasound exam, Cromar and her doctor discovered that she's carrying 2 fetuses at different stages of development, one slightly older than the other.

    "[He said] I'm 5 weeks and 4 days in one, and 6 weeks and 1 day in the other," Cromar [said]...

    The chances of this happening are estimated to be 1 in 5 million. "Probably less than 100, so far, worldwide, have been reported," [Dr. Steve] Terry, [Cromar's Ob/Gyn] said. "So she's a member of a small, elite club."

    Cromar herself is a labor and delivery nurse, and knows the complications her condition can bring: chances of pre-term labor and low birth weight....

My hunch is the babies will be delivered by c-section at the same time.

I thought this comment was pretty funny...
