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.

A new report released by the Guttmacher Institute
A new report released by the Guttmacher Institute found that in 2014, for the first time since 1975, the annual number of abortions dropped below one million.

“Abortion Incidence and Service Availability in the United States, 2014” is the result of the Guttmacher Institute’s latest survey of 1,671 abortion clinics, hospitals, and private physicians.

The report found that the number of abortions performed in the U.S. in 2014 dropped to 926,190, the lowest figure in thirty years, and was the first time the total has dropped below million a year since 1975.
