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.

Many people still don’t know how pro-abortion Hillary Clinton is and why pro-lifers support Donald Trump

Few outside of pro-life circles know the specifics of why National Right to Life supports Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton. They may vaguely sense that, like her husband, Mrs. Clinton is pro-abortion. But, outside pro-life circles, few know how it would be nearly impossible to exaggerate how tightly bound Clinton is to Planned Parenthood, NARAL, EMILY’s List, and the like.

Consider how far to port Clinton is, how all-encompassing is her embrace of the ideology of the most militant fringe of the abortion movement.

Whomever is the next President, he or she will fill the vacancy left by the death of Antonin Scalia but as many as three more Supreme Court justices. In no uncertain terms, Clinton has pledged to nominate only U.S. Supreme Court justices who will continue legal abortion on demand. Three or four appointments could solidify abortion on demand for a generation.

Clinton broke new ground earlier this year: eliminate the Hyde Amendment which for 40 years has kept the abortion industry from picking the taxpayers’ pockets. The American public robustly opposes federal funding of abortion.

And we need not belabor the obvious: like all pro-abortionists, Clinton is always looking for ways to steer more money into the coffers of Planned Parenthood.

Donald Trump has already cited a list of potential Supreme Court nominees. All are pro-life.

Unlike Clinton, Trump opposes the use of your tax dollars to pay for abortion. He has also made it clear he opposes taxpayer funding of organizations that perform abortions, including Planned Parenthood (the largest abortion provider in the nation), so long as they continue doing abortions.

And whereas Clinton would launch a full-throated offense against federal pro-life laws, Trump would veto laws attacking pro-life laws at the federal level.
