Equal Rights Amendment
Equal Rights Amendment UpdateWe 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

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.
