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. If this happens the Equal Rights Amendment will be ratified by Illinois. 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.

Kirk votes "no" on bill to defund Planned Parenthood, repeal Obamacare

Thursday night, Illinois' U.S. Senator Mark Kirk was one of only two Republicans that voted "no" on a measure to defund Planned Parenthood and repeal Obamacare. Maine's U.S. Senator Susan Collins was the other Republican to oppose the measure.

The bill, H.R. 3792, will return to the U.S. House, where it is likely to pass. But once it gets to President Obama's desk, it will be dead on arrival.

Kirk has consistently defended tax dollars going to Planned Parenthood, despite undercover videos revealing that various Planned Parenthood clinics were selling baby body parts for medical research. Planned Parenthood at first denied the practice, then promised to end it.
