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.

Terminally ill grandmother sees ultrasound in which she learns her grandchild is a girl

There are a gazillion Facebook videos but I’d wager few are as precious as this.

Taylor Masilotti and her mother Donna Callender watching Taylor’s ultrasound.

Just three days before she died, Donna Callender lay in bed next to her daughter Taylor Masilotti as the doctor operates an ultrasound machine. The doctor tenderly asks, “Are you ready? You have a daughter.”

“No way,” Callender says, and, momentarily, “Oh, wow. Look at it move.” Before you know it the doctor is patiently pointing out to both women the baby girl’s features– hands, eyes, the umbilical cord, and the like.

Mother and grandmother exchange looks that you have to see to understand. In a story filed by the Daily Mail, we read

‘Wednesday afternoon was one of my forever favorite memories I got to share with my mom,’ Taylor wrote on Facebook.

‘I got to lay next to her, hold her hand and cry happy tears while we found out the gender of the baby.

‘I can’t thank the hospital enough for allowing this to happen. For allowing me to create my last memory with my mom! ’
