Equal Rights Amendment
Equal Rights Amendment UpdateWe 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

Taste of Chicago Attendees to See Pro-Life Airplane Banner
Chicago-area pro-life advocate Chris Iverson helped get the idea off the ground. He explained that this is a grass roots effort by a group of friends who have pooled their funds to fly a banner over the massive event. “My friends and I have this hunger to raise awareness with the communities around Chicago about the problem of abortion. Having an airplane display a message was an idea that came up in conversation. We researched it and decided to go with it. We have been very effective at reaching hundreds of thousands of people with our pro-life banners on highway overpasses, but we have this hunger to do more. We just thought, what else could we do to raise awareness that abortion takes human life?”
