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

3% of population producing 30% of abortions
Seven years ago, Pastor Walter Hoye of Issues for Life Foundation spent 18 days in jail in Oakland, California, for holding a pro-life sign on a sidewalk in that city. Now he is spreading the truth about the impact of abortion on the black community nationwide. He points first to stats for New York City.
“For every 1,000 live births that we have in the black community in New York City, we have over 12,000 abortions,” he says. “We need to bring this kind of information to the light.”
Nationwide, the figures for how many abortions take place among African Americans are just as dramatic.
