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.

In March of 2009, during her first months as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton addressed the Planned Parenthood Federation of America Awards Gala and spoke of her vision for the world which included making it more “progressive,” code word for laws allowing broad access to abortion. She is shown here with PPFA President Cecile Richards.

Pro-abortion agitators are again using September 28 as the so-called Global Day of Access for Safe & Legal Abortion promoting access to abortion with staged activities in select cities around the world and online, #Sept28.

Organized by the International Campaign for Women’s Right to Safe Abortion, affiliated NGOs [Non-Governmental Agencies] have planned events to influence policy makers and as they call for “universal access to safe abortion” and for “the decriminalization of abortion around the world” with a “moratorium on prosecutions of women who have had abortions and safe abortion providers.”
