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.

Nike Supports Abortion

Nike Logo
Nike funds the Population Council, an international nonprofit organization that supports abortion, according to the Council's website. The Council conducts biomedical, social science, and public health research, plus helps build research capacities in developing countries.

One-third of its research relates to HIV and AIDS. The other major program areas include reproductive health, poverty, youth, and gender. The Population Council "offers policymakers and healthcare providers the evidence they need to help communities implement safer abortion and postabortion care practices, increase positive health-seeking behavior, and reduce stigma."

Plus, Nike is involved with Planned Parenthood. Fortune magazine reported on July 13, 2015, "Nike matches its employees' contributions to the regional Planned Parenthood affiliate in Oregon, but didn't specify the sum."

On the Nike Foundation's 2014 tax form, Nike matches gifts to the Susan G. Komen New York City and Minnesota chapters which fund Planned Parenthood.
