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

Millennials not apathetic about abortion

Students for Life of America (SLA) circulated the petition among students asking the Senate to pass a 20-week ban. Kristin Hawkins, president of Students for Life, says during her visit to Capitol Hill last month she delivered the petition with 1,300 signatures from students on 25 campuses.

Hawkins, Kristan (Students for Life)"There is that misconception out there that young people are extremely liberal when it comes to abortion, that they tolerate abortion when in fact they don't," she states. "A National Journal poll this semester showed that 52 percent of millennials are in favor of banning abortions in the second trimester. That's 13 weeks."

"For college students in the midst of exams, club meetings, work, and other obligations, taking the time to check out [our] display and sign their name was a testament to the recognition of the exceptional horror of abortion, especially this late in pregnancy," says the pro-life leader.
