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

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