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.

Pro-life training in the college classroom

Only one collegiate-level school is offering pro-life courses that could potentially lead to career opportunities in the movement.

The only school, so far, providing formal pro-life training is Oklahoma Wesleyan University in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Scott Klusendorf of Life Training Institute is teaching part of the course work. He says the issue at stake is that America needs a movement of pro-lifers who are professionally trained.

“We need to have them equipped to make a persuasive case in the public square using arguments that resonate with a secular culture,” he tells OneNewsNow. “And if you look at the pro-life movement today, it's led by hardworking, part-time volunteers. To flip the equation, we need equipped pro-lifers who can do this for a living full-time.”
