Equal Rights Amendment

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

Euthanasia could get a major shot in the arm

At issue is a proposal for the national doctor group to move to a neutral position on Euthanasia – often called physician-assisted suicide or “mercy killing.” This neutral position is what pro-death forces are striving for, believing that it will open the door for physicians to help kill their patients.

Association of Pro-Life Physicians President Dr. Patrick Johnston told OneNewsNow, “The issue here is not what the Left – the pro-death forces – are making it out to be,” Johnston argues. “I want people to be comfortable – and at the end of life, as well. The issue is prescribing a poison to intentionally kill patients versus providing compassionate, loving health care compatible with the Golden Rule.

The Hippocratic Oath, on the other hand, calls physicians to do no harm. Johnston points out that in pre-Hippocrates Greece, patients were more concerned that doctors were being paid to kill them than they were paying them to keep them alive.
