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.

Abortion was, is, and will continue to be an important issue in elections

As political pundits talk increasingly about the 2016 election cycle, we know that biased pro-abortion media will claim that abortion will not be an issue in the election.

Yet a CBS Poll released March 29, 2015, asked Republicans if they would consider voting for a presidential candidate who holds a different view on abortion than they did. Interestingly it was a deal-breaker for 51% questioned, who said they would NOT vote for someone with a different view on abortion. Abortion was the second highest “deal-breaker” for Republicans.

In 2014, 23% of voters across the nation said that the abortion issue affected their vote and voted for candidates who oppose abortion. Just 16% said abortion affected their vote and voted for candidates who favor abortion. This 7% net gain for pro-life candidates made the difference in many races.

Another way to look at it: in 2014, 39% of all voters said abortion affected their vote. Of those who considered abortion important, 59% voted for the pro-life candidate.
