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.

2-State Medical Clinic–“The Hope Van”–to Hit the Road with Mobile Unit

Situated in the northwest corner of Illinois and the southeast corner of Iowa, Quad Cities Pregnancy Resources is one organization spread across two sites and, as it happens, two states.

In July 2016, the number of locations will increase dramatically—depending on the day of the week, that is—once the organization gets its mobile ultrasound unit on the road.

The group’s executive director, Susan Skoklund, says the mobile unit—nicknamed “The Hope Van”—will start out operating three days a week with a plan to move to five days a week in five different locations.

Slated for a ribbon-cutting ceremony July 15, Skoglund is projecting the new addition to help the 26-year-old organization increase its already impressive suite of services that delivered over 3,000 unique points of assistance in 2015.
