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.

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.
