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.

Another historical step for the unborn
Today, pro-lifers got as close as we’ve come to eliminating virtually all federal funding of Planned Parenthood, and also to repealing major anti-life provisions of Obamacare. Working strategically with pro-life leaders in Congress, we won important votes on the floors of the House and Senate, employing a rarely used procedural technique called Budget Reconciliation to get the bill that we call the “pro-life budget reconciliation bill” to the president’s desk.
That Barack Obama chose to veto the bill, and today got enough of his Democratic House members to vote to uphold his veto, doesn’t end the issue. Not at all.
What it does is to show America what we need to advance from this important step to ultimate enactment: a pro-life president in 2016 who will not veto the bill.
It’s that simple.
