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.

ACTION ALERT - U.S. House to vote Sept. 17 or 18 on Defund Planned Parenthood Act!
The U.S. House of Representatives will vote on Sept. 17 or 18 on the Defund Planned Parenthood Act (H.R. 3134), sponsored by Rep. Diane Black (R-Tn.). We strongly support this legislation. The bill would place a moratorium on federal funding to all affiliates of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), which is the nation's largest abortion provider, performing more than one-third of all of the abortions in the U.S.
