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

Facebook reverses course after first offering absurd reason to reject CPC ad

Birthright of Bel Air Facebook Ad
Birthright of Bel Air Facebook Ad
Ok, I grant you there is no necessary linkage. But…

(1) Facebook’s cofounder has pledged to give $20 million “to political groups that support Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton,” according to the Washington Post.

(2) That, as of May, “Facebook employees as individuals have donated more than $114,000 to Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton this election cycle, by far the most of any presidential candidate,” the Hill newspaper reported.

(3) Facebook turned down an ad from a Crisis Pregnancy Center for reasons that no one over the age of 6 would believe are genuine.

From WBFF, Fox News 45 Baltimore: Seems Birthright of Bel Air, a Harford County pregnancy aid center, wanted to do what many organizations routinely do : pay Facebook so its advertisement would reach a wider online audience.

But the word– the word which was delivered within 5 minutes of the request’s submission–was no.

So why did Facebook change its tune? Atha’s friends share the new ad on their personal pages–maybe that had an influence, she suggested. ( Or perhaps Facebook got wind a story might be coming out about its absurd decision.)
