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.

Want to Elect a Pro-Life President? Here’s what NOT to do.

On November 8, either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will be elected President. One of them will decide abortion policies for many years to come.

Nearly eight years of Obama’s presidency has already been devastating. The Obama presidency brought us two new pro-abortion Supreme Court justices, a healthcare law that expands abortion and threatens the vulnerable, and vows to veto pro-life legislation, including a bill that would protect unborn babies 20 weeks and older from painful late abortions, and a bill that would defund abortion providers.

We cannot afford four – let alone eight – more years of a president that does not value the right to life.

Hillary Clinton supports unlimited abortion, and she wants to force Americans to pay for it. In contrast, Donald Trump opposes abortion, and he opposes using your tax dollars to pay for abortion.

As pro-lifers, our goal must be to elect a president who will protect lives.

To achieve our goal, we have to be strategic. There are a number of ways we can actually defeat a pro-life candidate. For the sake of the babies, we cannot afford to make these mistakes in 2016.
