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.

Planned Parenthood’s deep-seated need to try to coopt Mother’s Day

Each year it’s only a matter of how Planned Parenthood mangles the beauty of Mother’s Day, not whether. So what did have to say about Mother’s Day, 2016? As you can see below, that PPFA is “committed to building a world that values, respects, and supports safe and wanted motherhood #MomsMatter”

PPFA’s mission statement (and its mission) can be taken in a lot different directions. Suffice it to say, that the “world” to which PPFA says it is committed to has no room for the over 500,000 females aborted annually (over a third at PPFA clinics) in the United States alone.

That whenever PPFA is involved, the single most dangerous place for a yet-to-be-born female is her mother’s womb.

That “wantedness” is a dicey qualification for an organization that rightly laments how historically so many women were unwanted and powerless. PPFA is simply oblivious to the incredibly dangerous ripple effect of grading life on a wantedness curve–see every attack on the vulnerable who are not unborn babies, particularly those who are old and/or cognitively weakened by disease.
