Illinois Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment


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.

Imagining a Clinton Legacy

Hillary Clinton is a known quantity. As NRL News editor Dave Andrusko so succinctly summarized Clinton’s position, “Abortion for any reason or no reason, as late in pregnancy as desired, paid for by the public.” If she were elected president for four, maybe even eight years, what would be her legacy to this great country?

The short answer? A further entrenchment of abortion on demand and millions more unborn babies whose lives are ended because they are ‘inconvenient’ or someone deemed them not worthy of respect.

In the 1990s, when Hillary’s husband was president, their often quoted position was that abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare.”

No one in the pro-life community ever believed that cover story, but many did.

Her position became very clear, however, with the Health Security Act, also known as Hillary Care. This “health” plan, formulated by Hillary Clinton and pushed by her husband’s administration, was a dream come true for the abortion industry. It would have required that every health plan or policy sold provide a federally defined benefits package which covered abortion on request; that every working American and every employer must purchase the federal benefits package, including abortion; and that abortion facilities be accessible in every region of every state. In addition, the law would have repealed many state laws on abortion including parental consent, waiting periods, limits on third-trimester abortions, conscience clauses, etc.

In other words, Hillary’s health plan would have been all abortion all the time. The pro-life community worked extremely hard to make sure that Hillary’s plan never became law.
