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.

Building a Pro-Life Future

From the 2016 National Right to Life Convention...

Grassroots pro-lifers are constant and consistent–educating, working on legislation, working at pregnancy centers, talking to friends and neighbors, working with young people. That faithfulness is making a difference.

During World War II, as you might expect, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill had some dark days, but he didn’t necessarily look at setbacks as defeat. He asked a friend, “Why do we regard history as of the past and forget we are making it?”

We, right now, are making history. We are fighting for what is right, defending the defenseless and speaking up for the voiceless. Future generations will look back on our efforts as a bright light during a very dark period in our nation’s past. We, here today, are making history– building a pro-life future in which all human life will be respected and protected.
