Equal Rights Amendment

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

Oh, what tangled webs we weave…. Tim Kaine and the Hyde Amendment

Since the beginning of the month pro-abort Sen. Tim Kaine has gone from saying, “I have traditionally been a supporter of the Hyde amendment, but I’ll check it out,” to opposing it, according to Clinton’s campaign manager, to being “committed to carrying out Secretary Clinton’s agenda,” although “not personally for repeal of the Hyde Amendment, according to a Clinton spokesperson, to telling CNN today, “I have been for the Hyde Amendment and I haven’t changed my position on that.”

Two quick points. The CNN host didn’t ask Kaine the obvious question: whether he did or didn’t personally support the Hyde Amendment, was he still “committed to carrying out Secretary Clinton’s agenda” which includes overturning the Hyde Amendment? The answer doubtless would have been yes.

Second, forcing taxpayers to pass for abortions is a losing position, no matter how many times Clinton and her supporters tell you otherwise.
