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.

Abortion Kills 185% More People in Black America than All Thirteen Other Leading Causes of Death

According to the National Vital Statistics Report, Vol. 65, No. 2 dated February 16, 2016, the total number of deaths in Black America from the thirteen leading causes of death is 232,335. Abortion dramatically increases that toll.

Let's do the math ...
232,335 Black Deaths (13 leading causes) +
429,000 Black Abortions in 2013
------------
661,335 Total Black Deaths

Abortion represents a 185% increase in deaths from all 13 other leading causes of death in Black America, according to Dennis Howard, President of the Movement for a Better America, who has written extensively on abortion demographics. Howard says, "Abortion is the number one cause of death in Black America. No other cause of death in Black America, even comes close."

Live births in Black America for 2013 amounted to 634,760, leaving a Black Life Deficit of (26,575). In Black America, more people are dying than being born. If not for abortion, the Black community would be growing by over 400,000 lives a year. If Black America is going to continue to exist, our priorities must change.
