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.

Planned Parenthood official: women get “less than sympathetic treatment”

A Planned Parenthood state official, who did not want to give his name, admitted that some women who go to Planned Parenthood are treated poorly. In a 2013 pro-abortion book, he says:

We try to make very sure that everyone seen in our clinics – for any service, not just for abortions – is treated with kindness and courtesy. But the reality is that there is no law that can guarantee sympathetic behavior. There are all sorts of reasons today why women get less than sympathetic treatment: patient overload, job-related stress and the necessity of hiring office staff who may not be fully “in sync” with the right to choose, to name just three.

Abby Johnson wrote an article in which she noted that Planned Parenthood will hire just about anyone because they are so desperate for employees to work there.
