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.

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.
