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.

The first of President-elect Donald Trump’s many pro-life selections to lead major departments reaffirmed his 100% negative opinion of the disastrous 1973 Roe v. Wade decision in confirmation hearings that began Tuesday.

Senator Jeff Sessions, Mr. Trump’s choice to be the next Attorney General, was asked Monday if he stood by a previous characterization of Roe. At hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, pro-abortion Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Ca.) said to Sessions, “You have referred to Roe v. Wade as, ‘one of the worst, colossally erroneous Supreme Court decisions of all time.’ Is that still your view?”

“It is,” Sessions replied. “It violated the Constitution, and really attempted to set policy and not follow law.”
