Equal Rights Amendment Update
We are happy to report that the ERA was not called for a vote this week. Thank you for all your hard work to contact your legislators and reach out to others to engage their help on this important issue. Your efforts combined with divine intervention kept the ERA from moving forward. Your voices were truly heard in Springfield this week!

The resolution to ratify the ERA still remains on the table and can still be voted on, but the Illinois Senate and the Illinois House will not meet again until mid January 2018. Click here for more

Profits over people? Former abortion worker warns of continuing clinic abuses

After the Supreme Court struck down Texas’ abortion clinic regulations last week, a new report claims that these clinics are ignoring health standards and continuing to put women at risk.

“It just shows that, over and over again, the abortion industry is more concerned about putting profit ahead of the safety of women,” said Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood employee and founder of the pro-life “And Then There Were None” ministry, which helps abortion clinic workers leave the industry.

The #NotOver campaign is a “multi-phase” project launched after the Supreme Court struck down safety regulations of Texas abortion clinics on June 27. It aims to draw attention to poor health standards at abortion clinics and push Congress to pass clinic regulations.
