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.

2014 shows Planned Parenthood decline but gov't funds still flow

Planned Parenthood is declining even though the federal government continues to pump a huge amount of taxpayer dollars into the organization.

American Life League's STOPP International has released a survey of Planned Parenthood facilities in the United States. Spokesman Jim Sedlak describes what the organization found.

Sedlak, Jim (American Life League)“During the year 2014, Planned Parenthood continued to close centers at a record rate,” he says. “In 2014, they closed 34 health centers in 19 different states, which means it now has a total of 668 centers around the nation.”

That's down from 938 in 1995. Out of those centers, 337 perform surgical or medical abortions. The number of Planned Parenthood facilities nationwide has declined dramatically since 1973.

“Planned Parenthood maintains its position as the nation's largest abortion chain as it now operates 45.6 percent of all of the surgical-medical abortion facilities in the country,” he tells OneNewsNow.
As far as tax revenue for 2014, government funding has decreased, but only slightly compared to the overall amount directed to Planned Parenthood.

“The government reduced funding by $12 million, but it still gives them over $530 million - so the decrease was not much,” he says.

Most of the decrease came from state tax revenue. American Life League's goal is to put an end to Planned Parenthood, and Sedlak contends the report shows the campaign is having the intended impact.

South Dakota has become the fifth state with only one Planned Parenthood abortion facility in operation, and North Dakota is the only state where medical services are not offered by Planned Parenthood.
