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

Roskam: I Will Always Stand for Life
Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06), a member of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, released the following statement after House passage of H.R. 3134, the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015, and H.R. 3504, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Roskam helped introduce the Defund Planned Parenthood Act in July following the release of multiple videos of senior Planned Parenthood officials discussing the trafficking of fetal body parts.
“We must remain vigilant in our fight to protect the most vulnerable among us—those infants and the unborn who are unable to protect themselves. The horrific Planned Parenthood practices exposed in recent weeks brings a renewed urgency to this issue. These bills are an important step forward in defense of life, and I will always stand for life.”
Roskam also spoke on the House floor in support of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
