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

U.S. Supreme Court Decision puts Women at Risk
As Carol Tobias, the President of National Right to Life has stated, "How shabby are these abortion clinics that they cannot meet minimal standards other outpatient surgical centers are required to meet, and just how bad are these abortionists that they can't get admitting privileges at a local hospital? As we saw with Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia, it's clear that the lucrative abortion industry is not able or willing to police itself and allows filthy, deplorable conditions to go unchecked."
The immediate tragedy in today's Supreme Court ruling is that the women and unborn children of Texas and entire nation continue to be at risk at clinics and medical offices which require little or no oversight for their adherence to basic, common sense, medical protocols which would accompany almost any other surgery or major medical procedure. The long term impact of this ruling remains to be seen but pro-life people must continue efforts to protect women from those willing to sacrifice them for a political agenda and financial gain.
