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.

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.
