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.

Congress refers New Mexico to abortion case

Pro-life groups are waiting to see if the New Mexico attorney general moves against two abortion-related entities in the state.

Congress' Select Investigative Panel on Human Life has issued a criminal referral to New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas amounting to a legal case in which the University of New Mexico and Southwestern Women's Options abortion clinic in Albuquerque may have violated state and federal law. The case involves the harvesting of aborted baby body parts for the university.

Tara Shaver with Protest ABQ tells OneNewsNow it's not the first time Balderas has heard of the charges.

“We filed a formal complaint with him back in July really hoping that he would dig into the issue because we had compelling evidence from Southwestern Women's Options' consent form showing that the women were not even able to opt out of designating their aborted baby body parts for research,” she says. “It was just mandatory for them to sign this form to get their abortion.”
