House Committee passed the Equal Rights Amendment
The Equal Rights Amendment was passed out of committee on May 16th with a vote of 7 to 5. The next step is a vote in the IL House. If this happens the Equal Rights Amendment will be ratified by Illinois. Then only one more state has to ratify the ERA and it will be sent to Congress to become an amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
In Illinois, we still have a chance to stop it.

“Assigning human attributes to not-yet-human embryos” upsets pro-abortionists
How so? Well, it’s all cumulative, Benedikt writes unhappily, this “treat[ing] fetuses like people—including them in our family photo shoots, tagging them on our Facebook walls, giving them their own Twitter accounts.”
The more there is of that “the harder it will be to deny that they are people,” the more difficult it will be to resist “legislators and activists arguing that ‘the unborn child’ inside a pregnant woman’s womb should have the same rights as the living among us.” Woe is me.
Pro-abortionists are not known for understatement (they ARE known for seeing conspiracies everywhere) so it is not surprising that Benedikt grows progressively more unglued as her essay proceeds. From a grudging live-and-let-live (so to speak) perspective in the beginning, by the end abortion advocates who are female are warned that to Photoshop sonograms on their pregnant stomachs is the equivalent of giving aid and comfort to the enemy (that would be us).
