House Committee passed the Equal Rights Amendment

The Equal Rights Amendment was passed out of committee on May 16th with a vote of 7 to 5. The next step is a vote in the IL House. If this happens the Equal Rights Amendment will be ratified by Illinois. Then only one more state has to ratify the ERA and it will be sent to Congress to become an amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

In Illinois, we still have a chance to stop it.

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."
