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.

Is your vote in accordance with what you say you believe?

Be their voice, Vote Pro-Life
As an old-fashioned patriotic type, I believe we are obliged to take responsibility for shaping our democracy. But, at the same time, I know that others are convinced there are other “better” uses of their time, especially if they are not inspired by the candidates. I speak to them all the time.

However there is an altogether different moral calculus for pro-lifers. Babies die by the thousands each and every day. Can we honestly say we don’t have 20 minutes to do what we can to level the legislative field for those who have no voice but ours?

In our capacity as single-issue pro-life voters, do we properly recognize the clear implication of our own view?

Always?

Probably we do, in the sense that in our ethical calculations we prioritize saving unborn babies from abortion and the medically dependent from assisted suicide and euthanasia. But as voters, do we always, always, always go to the polls?
