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.

Six thoughts about the election 75 days out

Presidential Candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton
Presidential Candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton
I have never seen a presidential contest that even begins to rival Donald Trump versus the matriarch of the International Abortion Establishment, Hillary Clinton, for complexity, unpredictability, and the ever-rising level of media venom spewed toward one contestant, Mr. Trump.

Mrs. Clinton is ahead in most polls but not nearly as far as you might think. Let’s think through the contest which shall likely decide the composition of the Supreme Court for decades, 75 days out from election night.

Here are six considerations.

#1. Never, ever forget that every poll shows that Mrs. Clinton is personally deeply unpopular and not considered either honest or trustworthy.

#2. The negative impact of the overlapping scandals (private e-mailer server/Clinton Foundation] that have dogged Clinton can only worsen. Virtually every few days we learn something disconcerting about Clinton’s use of a personal email server during her tenure as Secretary of State.

#3. Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s new campaign manager, is pro-life through and through.

#4. When you read the polls, look particularly closely at the ones that include Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Given how unhappy many people are with the Trump/Clinton choice, the numbers voting for the alternatives likely will increase.

#5. Trump is famous, or infamous, for putting little stock in the traditional ground game of identifying and getting supporters to the poll. But not the Republican National Committee.

#6. We will not know until the Election Day results are thoroughly analyzed if there really was/is a vote for Trump that traditional polling techniques are missing. If it proves to be true, the work of Pittsburgh Tribune Review’s Salena Zito will be cited and cited again.
