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.

Throwing out Texas law tempts others to try for the same

In the aftermath of the Supreme Court overturning the Texas abortion clinic law this week, Pennsylvania Senator Daylin Leach reportedly is testing the waters trying to gain support for repealing the bill passed after the Kermit Gosnell scandal. Gosnell was found guilty of killing three babies born alive at his filthy, substandard abortion clinic in Philadelphia and now is serving a life term.

The law that Leach would like to see overturned sets simple standards for abortuaries, such as keeping facilities clean and sterilizing instruments. Maria Gallagher of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation explains that the law only brings positives, even for the abortion-minded.

“We see where those facilities are undergoing regular inspections and those inspections are posted on the Internet for everyone to see,” she says. “It's tragic that abortion is still occurring in Pennsylvania, but it's not a situation where the abortion facilities are being hamstrung in any way by our law.”
