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.

March for Life Chicago Sunday

Busloads from surrounding states are planning to gather with fellow pro-lifers Sunday, January 17 at the 2016 March for Life Chicago on Chicago’s Federal Plaza to proclaim the sanctity of human life and call for an end to abortion as they march through the Loop beginning at 2 p.m.

Organizers are expecting at least 7500, likely to be the largest pro-life event in the Midwest to date.

Chicago’s Archbishop Blase Cupich is expected to return to the March for Life Chicago after a well-received debut in 2015.  Last year, as he marked with sadness the January 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in America, Cupich reminded listeners that, “We are here to do everything possible to make sure that the right to life is preserved.”

March for Life Chicago President Emily Zender said the theme for this year’s march is ‘We Are Family."
