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.

PPFA files suit against pro-life laws in three states

As part of the continuing fallout from last June’s Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt decision and as an example of pro-abortionists’ extremism, three different Planned Parenthood affiliates Wednesday joined the ACLU and the Center for Reproductive Rights in challenging laws in North Carolina, Alaska, and Missouri.

North Carolina’s law protects unborn babies 20 weeks gestational age and older with an exception for medical emergencies and if the woman’s life is at risk. There is an abundance of medical evidence that by this point the preborn is capable of experiencing unspeakable agony as she is torn apart.

Alaska’s law bars outpatient abortions after the first trimester of pregnancy.

Missouri’s law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges in a nearby hospital (in case of emergencies) and that abortion clinics meet the health and safety of standards of ambulatory surgical centers.
