Illinois Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment


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 Thursday’s episode of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, titled “Roar,” a brave, determined pregnant cancer patient took a pro-life stance rather than be bullied into an abortion by the doctors at Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital.

During a random, casual conversation in a courthouse security line between a pregnant woman in her sixteenth week named Veronica and Dr. Alex Karev (Justin Chambers), Karev noticed a rash on the pregnant woman’s hands and encouraged her to seek medical attention.

At the clinic later, test results showed Veronica had stage 4 pancreatic cancer – a terminal diagnosis – with less than a year to live, even with treatment. Unfortunately, the pressure began immediately for her to have an abortion so that her chemo and radiation could begin. Dr. Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson), Chief of Surgery, was not receptive to an alternative procedure that would try to keep the baby alive long enough to be born. She only saw one patient, when she should have seen two.
