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

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.”
