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.

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.
