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

The Dignity of Unborn Children Goes On Trial Today in United States District Court
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Planned Parenthood are once again teaming up in hopes of blocking Indiana’s new protections from going into effect on July 1. The expected ACLU argument will be that the free speech rights of abortion facility workers, who profit from the act of dismembering unborn children, outweighs the basic right to live for a baby with Down syndrome, or for the little girl whose parents would rather have a boy, or for the little boy whose life is being terminated for no other reason than the color of his skin. These are the children whose civil rights the ACLU is hoping to deny. What a strange contradiction for an organization with “civil liberties” incorporated into its name.
Regarding the humane disposal of aborted babies, the ACLU will argue that it is nonsense to require that aborted babies be treated any differently than any common medical garbage. Just months ago Indiana learned that the bodies of aborted babies were being shipped in 31-gallon drums to a medical waste plant in Indianapolis to be ground up with other garbage, and even persons with no interest in the abortion debate were horrified.
