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

Land’s End clothing quickly withdraws glowing tribute to pro-abortion icon Gloria Steinem
This photo spread interview with Gloria Steinem spurred backlash
In its corporate apology issued Wednesday, Land’s End wrote
“We thought it was a good idea and we heard from our customers that, for different reasons, it wasn’t.”
The Dodgeville, Wisconsin-based retailer of traditional clothing’s “good idea” was to include an interview with and photos of pro-abortion icon Gloria Steinem in its spring catalogue to kick off the Lands’ End “Legend Series” on “individuals who have made a difference in both their respective industries and the world at large.” The Steinem interview was conducted by Company CEO Federica Marchionni.
The backpeddling was furious as irate customers took to the company’s Facebook page to blast the decision. The interview was pulled yesterday with Land’s End saying it “sincerely apologize[d]. Our goal was to feature individuals with different interests and backgrounds that have made a difference for our new Legends Series, not to take any political or religious stance.”
