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.

2016 Senate Elections: Here’s why you MUST Vote!

The next president will nominate a successor for the late Justice Antonin Scalia. He or she will also likely have the opportunity to nominate successors to at least two more justices.

As we anticipate those nominations, perhaps the greatest responsibility we in the political field have right now is to ensure we have a pro-life Senate that will confirm pro-life nominees and block judges who would entrench and expand Roe.

There are a lot of races we will need to work on to accomplish this task. But I know that equipped with the right information, you will go back to your communities and rally the necessary troops to see this through.

This year, there are 34 U.S. Senate seats up for election: 10 Democrat seats and 24 Republican seats.

All of the Democrats up for re-election are pro-abortion.

Please do not fall into the trap of thinking that if you don’t live in one of the “toss-up” states, this election doesn’t affect you. Remember we are all in this together, and we need to support each other, regardless of our location. Find out how you can support your colleagues via social media.
