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.

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.

IL Planned Parenthood uses tax dollars to win elections, acquire more tax dollars

Planned Parenthood Federation of America has been the focus of an ongoing undercover investigation by Center for Medical Progress, whose staffers posed as individuals interested in procuring fetal tissue and organs for research.

Thus far, they've released nine videos with Planned Parenthood officials and insiders explaining how babies are aborted, how their body parts are distributed for medical research, and how they profit from the transactions.

Illinois' funding of Planned Parenthood was highlighted late last week when Adam Andrzejewski revealed that Illinois Comptroller Leslie Munger has paid Planned Parenthood $4.3 million of taxpayer money since January - and "Grants and Awards" of $1,592,850 between June 17 and July 22nd.
