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 leader defends GOP amid Zika fight

A two-month battle has ensued on Capitol Hill, where Democrats held up Zika funding to obtain funds for abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

Douglas Johnson of the National Right to Life Committee says the blames goes to the Democrats.

"Who were simply willing to let there be no mosquito control, no vaccine development funds," Johnson claims, "unless these funds were not constrained in the way that the Republicans wanted to constrain them."

GOP leaders wanted to keep the funds from groups that perform abortions, and there is criticism that Republicans are willing to drop that provision.

Johnson says that doesn't mean Republicans caved on the issue and calls GOP leadership "outstanding" on the issue.
