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.

Pro-life Kellyanne Conway picked to manage Trump campaign

When Donald Trump named Kellyanne Conway his new campaign manager, it is a testimony to the bias against the Trump campaign that it went virtually unnoticed that she was the first female to head a major presidential campaign

But what did not go unnoticed by pro-lifers is that a movement pro-lifer, someone who has labored in the trenches for decades on behalf of unborn babies, someone who in the past has polled for National Right to Life, is now in charge of Mr. Trump’s campaign.

“Kellyanne is very, very smart and without question more knowledgeable about public opinion on abortion than any other pollster,” said David. N. O’Steen, Ph.D., executive director of National Right to Life. “She will provide Trump with savvy insight and advice as he runs against the most pro-abortion presidential candidate ever in Hillary Clinton, and a media establishment that is determined to elect her.”

In addition to having addressed the National Right to Life board of directors, Mrs. Conway delivered a general session speech at the 2006 National Right to Life convention. I remember her comments vividly because she patiently explained what happens when people are asked honest questions about abortion, not questions geared to inflate the “pro-choice” response: “83% of those surveyed want some kind of restriction on the unfettered access to abortion,” was her conclusion.
