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 partner reportedly takes 400-600% profit for fetal organs

A report from the US House of Representatives charges that StemExpress, a California firm, sold fetal tissue for as much as six times the purchase cost, in violation of federal law that prohibits the sale of fetal tissue for profit.

Undercover videos taken by the Center for Medical Progress had shown Planned Parenthood officials arranging for the delivery of fetal body-parts to StemExpress, to be sold for medical research. After a further probe, the House Selective Investigative Panel on Infant Lives reports that the fetal organs were sold for profit. The panel also said that the sales by Planned Parenthood to StemExpress appeared to violate federal laws requiring confidentiality in the records of medical patients.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, who chairs the House panel, said that the business relationshiop between Planned Parenthood and StemExpress changed the nature of the relationship between the abortion clinic and the pregnant women. "The contract changes the way both entities view the young woman," she said. "Her baby is now a profit center."
