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.

Pro-lifers shed light on controversial abortion research

Researchers at the University of Hawaii are conducting gruesome research to determine how much women bleed during a second-trimester abortion.

Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America says the organization held a protest rally demanding answers, including who is paying for the research.

Unborn babies, killed in the womb in the second semester, feel "excruciating pain," she says. Hawkins argues that the younger girls recruited for the research are likely victims of a crime. The age of consent is higher than 14 in Hawaii, she notes, so the girls are, at a minimum, victims of statutory rape.
