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.

Pro-life Donald Trump sends out letter outlining stark contrasts with pro-abortion Hillary Clinton on abortion

In a letter, pro-life Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump carefully contrasted the vast differences he has with pro-abortion Democrat Hillary Clinton, which included reaffirming his pledge to nominate pro-life justices to the Supreme Court.

Clinton has pledged just the opposite: to nominate only those who would uphold Roe v. Wade.

In his letter, Trump writes

Hillary Clinton not only supports abortion on-demand for any reason, but she’d take it a step further: she wants to force the taxpayers to pay for abortions by repealing the bi-partisan Hyde Amendment. Hillary Clinton also supports abortion until an hour before birth.

Mr. Trump is alluding to a remarkable series of statements Clinton made earlier this year that began when she told PPFA in January, ”Any right that requires you to take extraordinary measures to access it, is no right at all. … and not as long as we have laws on the books like the Hyde Amendment making it harder for low-income women to exercise their full rights.”

But that was just the start.
