Equal Rights Amendment

Equal Rights Amendment Update
We 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

Marching until this blight on America is resolved

Reports from NRLC state and local affiliates, combined with newspaper accounts, paint a picture of a highly-motivate pro-life grassroots. Doesn’t matter how cold it is–and in places such as Chicago it was zero degrees–Reuters reported that some 5,000 were in attendance.

“This is about the soul of our nation that we gathered here today,” said Archbishop Blase Cupich of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago. “As we bundle up in the cold today, we want to make sure the children are also born into a world that warmly welcomes them.”

Gatherings such as these in Chicago and Little Rock take place days before the annual March for Life where hundreds of thousands will gather at noon this Friday on the grounds of the Washington Monument, near the corner of 15th Street and Constitution Avenue.
