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

Pro-lifers forced into abortion referrals

Both California and Illinois have passed tough laws forcing pro-life volunteers to refer pregnant women for abortions, despite the fact that the volunteers’ purpose is to convince mothers not to terminate the lives of their babies.

Jor-El Godsey, who heads Heartbeat International, tells OneNewsNow the pro-lifers also have to post signs that are contrary to their message.

“Including [a sign saying] 'This is not a licensed medical clinic,' which is kind of interesting,” he says, “because in some of the states, what's supposedly required there is no licensing for medical clinics - so it's a bit of an intentional obscuring of truth in order to advance an agenda.”

So why are abortionists so ardent in their quest to force pro-lifers to send clients to abortion clinics?

“They are losing in the marketplace because abortion numbers have been coming down, thank God,” he responds.
