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.

The National Right to Life Committee today praised President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) to be nominated as attorney general in January.

“Jeff Sessions will bring to the Justice Department a strong record in defense of innocent human life, and consistent opposition to the imposition of social legislation by the judiciary,” said Douglas Johnson, Legislative Director of National Right to Life.

Throughout his tenure in the United States Senate, which began in 1997, Jeff Sessions has a 100% pro-life voting record.  He has co-sponsored pro-life legislation including the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would protect from abortion unborn children at 20 weeks fetal age or later, who are capable of feeling pain, and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would ensure a baby born alive during an abortion is given the same care that would apply to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.
