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!

Money spent on birth control doesn’t improve Third World

Steven Mosher of the Population Research Institute tells OneNewsNow that promoting the termination of pregnancies isn't the best way to help developing populations.
“My big objection is that if you want to reduce the birthrate in the developing world, the best thing to do is to help babies survive infancy and childhood,” he argues. “If you do that, if you reduce the infant and child mortality rate, then couples naturally have fewer children.”
