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.

Springfield Planned Parenthood to provide surgical abortions

Beginning Thursday, August 4th, 2016 Planned Parenthood in Springfield is offering surgical abortions.  This new service is igniting local pro-lifers and Springfield Right to Life.

“I think it’s a sad day for Springfield,” Tim Moore president of Springfield Right to Life said.

At this location, Planned Parenthood has only offered “medication abortions” since 2010 in which patients take one pill (RU486) at Planned Parenthood and a second pill at home to kill and miscarry the unborn child.

Pregnant adolescents and women up to 18 weeks gestation will have to make an appointment to receive this "service".  Surgical abortions can take up to a few hours where two lives go in and only one comes out alive if there are no complications.
