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.

A vote to protect people of conscience

On Wednesday, the House will vote on the Conscience Protection Act of 2016 (S 304), which prohibits people with conscience or religious objections – and churches and religious institutions as well – being forced to participate in abortion. It would also prohibit use of federal funds to discriminate against pro-life Americans.

Arina Grossu of Family Research Council Action provides an example.

"In California and New York, there's a mandate that forces churches and religious organizations to cover abortion in the employee health plans against their moral objections," she says. "So the Conscience Protection Act would ensure that people with moral objections to being involved at all in abortions will not have to be."

Complaints have been filed with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services by people forced to participate in abortion. Grossu tells OneNewsNow there's been no protection for those individuals.
