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.

Pro-life Activists to Hold Peaceful Sit-in and Risk Arrest

Groups to hold the sit-in/pray-in in front of Quicken Loans Arena on Wednesday, July 13 at 1:00 P.M.

Quicken Loans Arena is where the Republican National Convention will be held the following week.

The activists will kneel on the steps of Quicken Loans Arena or in the streets directly in front of the Arena, being a voice for the 900 children that are violently killed through abortion every day at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics across America.

Groups will also ask that the $540,000,000 given to Planned Parenthood annually instead go to 13,000 federally licensed health clinics that provide true comprehensive women's health care.

This sit-in/pray-in is part of a three day campaign in Cleveland, from July 13-15, calling for the Republican Party to defund Planned Parenthood in their Party Platform.
