Equal Rights Amendment Update
We are happy to report that the ERA was not called for a vote this week. Thank you for all your hard work to contact your legislators and reach out to others to engage their help on this important issue. Your efforts combined with divine intervention kept the ERA from moving forward. Your voices were truly heard in Springfield this week!

The resolution to ratify the ERA still remains on the table and can still be voted on, but the Illinois Senate and the Illinois House will not meet again until mid January 2018. Click here for more

Pro-Life NRLC: Bias obvious in advance care planning promotion

Nat'l Right to Life Committee (NRLC)An Institute of Medicine report apparently favors advance care planning in ObamaCare – but there may be a hidden motive in advancing the concept.

When ObamaCare was first proposed, one of the provisions called for doctors to be paid to talk to Medicare patients about advance care planning – i.e., whether they would want lifesaving medical treatment. Burke Balch of the National Right to Life Committee reminds OneNewsNow that following an outcry from the public the provision was dropped – but he contends it is now being revived and, in part, encouraged by the Institute of Medicine.


"And a lot of health insurers are now paying organizations to cold call their beneficiaries – those who are insured – to start sort of talking them [about] agreeing to sign documents that say they'll forgo [such] treatment," he explains.
