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

Hultgren: Planned Parenthood Discusses Aborted Body Parts over Red Wine

U.S. Representative Randy Hultgren (IL-14) today delivered a statement on the House floor deploring the actions of Planned Parenthood and its affiliates following an undercover video investigation into the organization. Hultgren called for an end to Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting the organs of aborted babies, supported the renewed congressional investigation into the organization, and urged Senate action on the House-passed legislation H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2015.
