Equal Rights Amendment

Equal Rights Amendment Update
We are happy to report that the ERA was not called for a vote this week. Thank you for all your hard work to contact your legislators and reach out to others to engage their help on this important issue. Your efforts combined with divine intervention kept the ERA from moving forward. Your voices were truly heard in Springfield this week!

The resolution to ratify the ERA still remains on the table and can still be voted on, but the Illinois Senate and the Illinois House will not meet again until mid January 2018. Click here for more

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.
