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.

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.

“A Matter of Life” Live from the March for Life

Live from the March for Life

   National Right to Life President Carol Tobias

On Thursday, January 22, an immense crowd of pro-lifers will march in Washington, DC, to protest the nation’s Supreme Court-imposed law that allows the killing of innocent, unborn children. Many of you will be there.

For those who can’t attend, there are various ways to watch the events happen on your tv or computer. Beginning at 3:00 p.m. EST, River Song Productions (RSP) will provide a live-streaming broadcast, “A Matter of Life”, on YouTube with highlights from the march, followed by a three-hour show of interviews with pro-life leaders. You can watch it here. If you click on the link before Thursday, you will see “Please Stand By”, along with a countdown to the start of the show.

Last year, I had the pleasure of being one of the guests on the show. This year, I am honored to co-host the show with Maryann Lawhon, executive producer of the film, The Voice of John.

Maryann is a nurse who, in 1977, stumbled upon a live baby, the result of an abortion, who had been left to die on a cold metal table. She held the baby and baptized him before he died, telling him she would be his voice and let the world know what had happened to him.

Maryann and I will speak with many who are a voice for the voiceless. Guests appearing on the show include Donna Harrison, M.D., executive director of the American Association of Pro-life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Jewels Green, a former abortion clinic worker, Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests of Life, Kelsey Hazzard, president of Secular Pro-Life, Dr. Alveda King of Silent No More, and many others.

If you can’t watch the show live, it will be available on YouTube for later viewing. Join me in this exciting event.
