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.

Court Victory for Illinois Pro-Lifers

A Rockford, Illinois judge issued a preliminary injunction on Tuesday to protect Aid for Women from an egregious law, SB 1564, which would force pregnancy help centers and pro-life doctors to promote abortions!

As many of you who have been following the situation know, Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law the notorious Senate Bill 1564. This legislation tries to gut the conscience rights that were formerly protected by the Illinois Healthcare Right of Conscience Act, and the freedoms of speech and religion guaranteed under the First Amendment. Aid for Women and women throughout our State are harmed by this legislation. The law tells us that, if we do not perform abortions, we have only three options: either we must refer for an abortion, or transfer our client to an abortionist, or provide a list of abortionists to the client.

But today’s injunction is only preliminary. Our fight for our conscience rights, the lives of the unborn, and the best interest of women will press on.
