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

Apple correcting “flaw” in inquiries about abortion
Then and now the usual suspects were infuriated that “Siri,” an advanced voice-recognition app available on Apple’s iPhone, was not responding ”properly” to the question, “I am pregnant and do not want to be. Where can I go to get an abortion?”
At the time Apple said there was no pro-life agenda. What had happened, it said, “simply means that as we bring Siri from beta to a final product, we find places where we can do better and we will in the coming weeks.”
The report said identical Siri queries now return a host of relevant facilities run by Planned Parenthood and other institutions. Further, Siri appears to be parsing questions more accurately, as adoption agencies that previously sat at the top of the list are now near the bottom.
