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.

Another big drop in U.S. abortions!

Abortion numbers have been falling sharply almost every year since 1990. Each of those decreases represents thousands of unborn babies whose lives have been saved.

But that life-saving shift didn’t just happen by itself. Each of those decreases also represents the support so many of you have given to the Right to Life movement so we can save innocent lives.

Last week, we received more good news. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reported another 5% drop in abortions between 2012 and 2013. Abortion statistics are always reported years after the fact, and the CDC numbers don’t include data from every state.

But comparing previous CDC data to the new report suggests there were tens of thousands fewer abortions in 2013 overall than the year before, which continues the life-affirming trend of the past 20+ years!
