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.

Churches lag on pro-life ministry

Students for Life's Institute for Pro-Life Advancement has released a new poll on discussing abortion within the church. Spokesperson Lisa Stover tells OneNewsNow a Gallup Poll found that 52 percent of women who have an abortion self-identify as Christians.

“And then in 2015 LifeWay Research found the number to be close to 70 percent, and they also found that 76 percent of those active, church-going women said that their church had no influence on their decision to abort,” she says. “And so this really shows that there's something lacking in our churches today.”

So if Christians attending church are not hearing the pro-life message and feel they have nowhere to turn within the church, she says, they tend to seek abortions.
