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

Twenty-Seven Year Battle Delivers Pro-Life Victory in Chicago
Eric Scheidler, Executive Director of the Pro-Life Action League, stated, "This is a victory for all who value human life. This abortion provider operated for years without any safety inspections, and multiple women have died following abortions performed there. Now that its doors have closed, this neighborhood is safer for women and their unborn children." From the time that the clinic opened in 1988, the Pro-Life Action League has organized sidewalk counseling, conducted protests and coordinated prayer vigils outside of the Albany neighborhood abortion provider.
Albany Medical-Surgical Center was sued by the family of 13 year-old Deanna Bell, who died during an abortion there in September 1992. The same Elston Avenue Family Planning Associates abortion clinic was cited in the abortion deaths of 22 year-old Maria Rodriguez in 2000, Maria Leho—a mother of three—in 1999 and Nakia Jorden in 1998.
