Illinois Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment

ERA PASSED THE ILLINOIS SENATE

On April 11, 2018 the Illinois Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment as Senate Joint Resolution Constitution Amendment 4 (SJRCA4). The fight now goes to the House.

Eight Republican Senators voted for the ERA. Pro-life Illinoisans deserve political leaders who will clearly commit to the protection of innocent unborn children, and who will follow through on that commitment.

While we are disappointed with all 43 Senators who voted for abortion, we are gravely disturbed by those who solicited pro-life support and presented themselves as pro-life but voted for the ERA. Their vote was a vote in opposition to life and will not be ignored. The Illinois Federation for Right to Life PAC, Illinois Citizens for Life PAC, Illinois Family Action PAC, Illinois Family PAC, and Lake County Life PAC will not endorse or support any legislator that casts a vote for such a sweeping pro-abortion piece of legislation as the ERA.

Constitution makes injunction against Daleiden invalid

David Daleiden, who heads The Center for Medical Progress, videoed Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation officials as they chatted about harvesting and selling organs and other tissue from aborted babies, allegedly for profit. Thomas More Society founder and attorney Tom Brejcha tells OneNewsNow the Federation sued Daleiden in federal court and obtained an injunction against him.

“It's really a gag order that says he cannot divulge to anybody outside of court the contents of his recordings at the annual conventions of the National Abortion Federation, at which these videos were taken undercover in 2014 and 2015,” Brejcha says.

The case is before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and Thomas More is arguing that the gag order conflicts with a First Amendment free-speech clause in what is called a prior restraint on speech. According to that clause, the court’s injunction against Daleiden is presumptively invalid under U.S. constitutional law.
