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

Illinois Law forces referrals, encouragement for abortion

Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner has signed into law a bill (SB1564) forcing pro-life people to violate their faith and conscience.

It requires all healthcare professionals to refer for abortions and discuss the benefits of abortion - regardless of what their personal feelings about abortion may be or the dictates of their conscience that they would never in a million years recommend or suggest an abortion to anyone

The U.S. Constitution guarantees freedom of speech, and the law, scheduled to go into effect in January, forces a particular speech. The Constitution also provides for freedom of religion.

Alliance Defending Freedom will be filing a lawsuit.
