Illinois Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment
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.
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.

Pro-Life Group Proves that Obamacare Subsidizes Abortion
A recent battle over free speech and abortion – involving a pro-life group and a pro-life Ohio Democrat – has prompted the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) to release a generic affidavit that outlines how the new health care law subsidizes abortion.
The move came after the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) came under fire recently for its media campaign against Rep. Steve Driehaus, D-Ohio.
Facing extremely unfavorable polling numbers and lack of support from the Democrat Party, Driehaus made a desperate move.
After learning about a planned billboard campaign, Driehaus filed a complaint with the Ohio Election Commission, alleging SBA List violated two election laws when it tried to place on billboards the simple message, "Driehaus voted FOR taxpayer-funded abortion."
The commission – which was mostly appointed by the Democrat governor – as well as federal judge who handled the emergency restraining order – who also was the former president of the Planned Parenthood of Cincinnati – ruled against SBA List.
The legal tussle continues.
NRLC filed an affidavit on behalf of SBA List, which provided at least 16 substantive examples in the new health care law where taxpayers are on the hook to fund abortions.
The pro-life group made available a generic version of the affidavit for the public. The new affidavit discusses H. Con. Res. 254 in paragraphs 27, 28, and 29.
