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

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?
