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

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. Reach out to your friends and family who may live in states with competitive Senate races.
