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

House Judiciary Committee Hears Testimony on Planned Parenthood’s “Horrific Abortion Practices”

Today’s three-hour hearing of the House Judiciary Committee was titled, “Planned Parenthood Exposed: Examining the Horrific Abortion Practices at the Nation’s Largest Abortion Provider.” Testimony from witnesses and questions from committee members amply illustrated just how ghastly these “practices” are, recently brought to the public’s attention by a series of eight undercover videos which show the Center for Medical Progress interviewing several high ranking Planned Parenthood officials.

Nothing could have better illustrated how far apart pro-life and pro-abortionists are than this exchange between Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and one of the four witnesses, Priscilla Smith, who directs Yale Law School’s Program for the Study of Reproductive Justice.

Rep. Goodlatte described what happens to an unborn baby in the course of a dismemberment abortion, how the baby is literally torn to pieces. He asked Ms. Smith if she considered this humane.

Yes, she responded, provided the baby [“fetus”] was not viable.
