Illinois Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment


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.

Understanding who Tim Kaine really is, not who some would want him to be

For some, Tim Kaine is a classic Rorschach test. Not that his true identity as a card-carrying pro-abortion Democrat is actually at issue, but there are various segments of those active in politics who are determined to see in him an image of their liking.

Just so we’re clear, NRLC knows exactly who he is. We have written about Kaine multiple times of late. He’s in the bag for the Abortion Industry and his choirboy face doesn’t change anything.

Likewise our opposite numbers know that they can count on Kaine, early, often, and always. Here are a couple of tweets from Cecile Richards:

But…. there are those fire-breathing pro-abortion feminist militants for whom nobody—or at least no man—could possibly be sufficiently zealous to be Hillary Clinton’s vice president. Kaine votes the right way, says all the right things, for heaven sakes he even co-sponsored a bill in the Senate to turn the pro-life legislative landscape into a wasteland. But not enough.

Kaine was chosen because he is lock-step with Clinton on abortion and because he comes off “moderate” enough to perhaps fool some.
