Equal Rights Amendment

Equal Rights Amendment Update
We 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

Pro-life Groups Call for the Republican Party to Defund Planned Parenthood in the 2016 Republican Party Platform

Several pro-life organizations are planning major demonstrations just before the Republican National Convention to ensure the pro-life message is heard by the Platform Committee.

Activists will request that $540,000,000 currently given to Planned Parenthood be redirected to 13,000 federally licensed health clinics which provide true comprehensive women's health care. These clinics provide a greater variety of services and choices to women than Planned Parenthood and are not under federal investigation.

The groups leading the demonstrations are also conducting a five-city tour through Ohio on June 16-17 in preparation for their campaign in Cleveland.
