House Committee passed the Equal Rights Amendment

The Equal Rights Amendment was passed out of committee on May 16th with a vote of 7 to 5. The next step is a vote in the IL House. If this happens the Equal Rights Amendment will be ratified by Illinois. Then only one more state has to ratify the ERA and it will be sent to Congress to become an amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

In Illinois, we still have a chance to stop it.

Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Against Pro-Life Group for Exposing Planned Parenthood's Top Medical Waste Hauler

On September 29th, Judge Margaret A. Marcoullier of the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit Court of Illinois released her decision on Stericycle, Inc. v. Created Equal (and Mark Harrington). Judge Marcoullier dismissed all three charges against Created Equal and Mark Harrington: defamation, false light, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The temporary restraining order was denied.

Read Judge Marcoullier's decision in favor of Created Equal:

This order was intended to stifle Created Equal's first amendment protected message that Stericycle is "enabling" abortion giant Planned Parenthood to kill preborn children.
