Illinois Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment


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.

President-Elect Trump chooses pro-life Reince Preibus to be his chief of staff

Reince Preibus, Trump’s choice to be his Chief of Staff
As you would expect, when President-elect Donald Trump announced yesterday he had chosen Reince Priebus to fill the all-important role of chief of staff, I asked the pro-lifers who would know Priebus best: Wisconsin Right to Life. Here’s what Heather Weininger, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life, told NRL News Today:

Reince Priebus is a true friend to all of us in the pro-life movement. Even from his earliest days in Wisconsin politics, Reince has always been, and always will be, on the side of those who are the most vulnerable.

While his behind-the-scenes pro-life efforts too often go unnoticed, his influence in Republican politics has markedly increased the strength of his party’s pro-life position. Reince, as chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, stayed firm and true to his state party’s pro-life platform. Then, as the head of the Republican National Committee, Reince worked hard to ensure his party’s national platform became the most pro-life it has ever been in the history of the Republican party.

Reince has never shied away from his firm belief in the right to life. We are thrilled that we will have a Wisconsinite working in the White House to fight for the most basic and fundamental human right, life.”
