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.

Pro-abortion ordinance confuses even the police

Attorney Thomas Olp of the Thomas More Society says a 2009 law passed in Chicago prohibits sidewalk counselors from getting close to abortion-minded women by creating an eight-foot bubble zone around each woman approaching the entrance to an abortion clinic.

"Within 50 feet of that entrance that bubble zone appears," Olp tells OneNewsNow, "and a pro-life counselor cannot knowingly, without permission, enter into that eight-foot bubble."

According to the attorney, the ordinance has resulted in confusion that has extended to police.

"Over the course of seven years there have been many instances in which the police have misinterpreted the law," he says. "We believe that the law is applied only to pro-life counselors and not to the escorts that are often times there at the abortion clinics to try to get between the pro-life counselors and the clients of the abortion clinic."
