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.

ACLU Illinois calls for end to medical personnel's right of conscience

The Illinois chapter of the ACLU is calling on Illinois lawmakers to pass legislation that would prohibit doctors, nurses and other medical personnel from exercising their First Amendment rights to speech, association and religion if it conflicts with the type of services and care their patients demand.

"You may be shocked to learn that current Illinois law permits doctors, nurses and other health care providers to deny information and health care to their patients based on the providers’ religious beliefs," the ACLU says on its website. "This law is wrong and must be changed in order to put patients first."

Doctors, nurses, medical personnel (including pregnancy crisis centers) will be required to inform their patients about protocols they may find objectionable. According to the Christian Medical and Dental Associations, ninety-five (95) percent of physicians in a national poll agreed with this statement: “I would rather stop practicing medicine altogether then be forced to violate my conscience.”
