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.

UN has trampled on rights of people with disabilities in its rush to push abortion

Life Institute spokeswoman Niamh Uí Bhriain said that the case had been brought before the United Nations by the US-based Centre for Reproductive Rights, a massively wealthy pro-abortion outfit who were persistently attacking Ireland’s pro-life laws. She said the UN Committee ruling contradicted international human rights law, and trampled on the rights of people with disabilities.

“What is really disgusting here is that this US-based organisation used the most vulnerable children of all, unborn babies with severe disabilities, to try to drive a wedge in Ireland’s abortion laws. These are the most vulnerable, most helpless unborn babies, they are sick and need support and protection, but these abortion campaigners cynically use their disability to attack their right to life, and to try to push abortion,” said Ms Uí Bhriain.

“Instead of protecting the most vulnerable, the UN has chosen, yet again, to champion abortion, and has trampled on the right of people with disabilities,” she added.
