Equal Rights Amendment UpdateWe are happy to report that the ERA was not called for a vote this week.

Chicago attorney says government trying to destroy videographer who exposed Planned Parenthood
Tom Brejcha, an attorney for the Chicago-based Thomas More Society, says anti-abortion activist and Center For Medical Progress founder David Daleiden is facing aggressive lawsuits for his undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood, and their end goal is to put him in jail and "destroy him financially."
Brejcha said that while abortion groups are pursuing aggressive lawsuits against Daleiden, President Barack Obama's Department of Justice "is waiting in the wings to pounce on David." Brejcha added that the California Attorney General's office is no friend of the right to life movement and have launched their own investigation of Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress.
