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.

During Black History Month, a pro-life leader reminds the nation that the most dangerous place for a black baby is in the womb.

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.
