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.

A few thoughts on the first presidential debate

Pro-abortion Hillary Clinton and Pro-life Donald Trump

And that was just Round One. Anyone who may have thought the opening debate might be low-key was disabused of that notion within a few minutes. Pro-life Donald Trump and pro-abortion Hillary Clinton went at it hammer and tongs.

A few thoughts.

#1. As moderator, NBC News’ Lester Holt was given the right to choose the questions and, he told us last night, no one had seen them. Our issue[s] did not come up. But then again

#2. That is hardly surprising. Holt asked nothing of Clinton that could even vaguely be described as probing, let alone hard.

Clinton’s position is to tell the American people that abortion on demand is a really good thing, such a wonderful action, in fact, that you and I must pay for it. Her out-to-sea position is supported by her husband and the Abortion Establishment. The public believes in a plethora of limitations on the “right” to abortion–as we have documented time and time again–and is adamantly against having their pockets picked to expedite the slaughter.

So, no, Holt was not going to ask Clinton about abortion.
