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.

Planned Parenthood VP calls Pro-Life politicians the “4 horsemen of the anti-abortion apocalypse”

Planned Parenthood was out in full force at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. In their typical tactless fashion, the abortion activists were busy distributing “protect yourself from Trump” condoms to passers-by. The message: Donald Trump wants to “take away your rights.”

That message was echoed by Planned Parenthood’s vice president, Dawn Laguens, when she told liberal media pundit Tammy Haddad that Trump was no friend of the “reproductive rights” crowd.

Per the abortion group’s typical name-calling, Laguens referred to Pro-Life politicians Marco Rubio, Mike Pence, Ted Cruz, and Scott Walker as the “4 horsemen of the anti-abortion apocalypse.” She also called the group the “anti-abortion squad.”

Laguens is afraid that as president, Trump will nominate Pro-Life justices to the Supreme Court of the United States, which would be a boon to Pro-Life legislation. On the other hand, if Planned Parenthood’s heavily-funded candidate (Clinton) is elected, abortion zealots are virtually guaranteed to own the Supreme Court for the foreseeable future.
