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.

Pro-life legislation hangs in the balance

During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump vowed that he would sign the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to protect the sanctity of human life.

Mallory Quigley, who serves with the Susan B. Anthony List, stated that voters are evidently in agreement with Trump's pro-life view. A large majority of Millennials, African Americans and Hispanics also support the pro-life proposal. Last year, the bill passed the House, but needed 60 votes in the Senate to move forward.

“Susan B. Anthony List put out the list of a new survey finding that a majority of voters – women in higher numbers than men – support the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” Quigley informed. “This is legislation that limits abortion after five months, which of course, is beyond halfway through pregnancy – and it's at a point at which the unborn child demonstrably feels pain.”
