Equal Rights Amendment
Equal Rights Amendment UpdateWe are happy to report that the ERA was not called for a vote this week. Thank you for all your hard work to contact your legislators and reach out to others to engage their help on this important issue. Your efforts combined with divine intervention kept the ERA from moving forward. Your voices were truly heard in Springfield this week!
The resolution to ratify the ERA still remains on the table and can still be voted on, but the Illinois Senate and the Illinois House will not meet again until mid January 2018. Click here for more

Illinois pushes hard against pro-lifers
Illinois has become one of the most pro-abortion states in the nation. It took 15 years for the Thomas More Society to work through the courts to get a parental notification law in place.
According to Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League in Chicago, the state passed a conscience bill last year "that is forcing doctors and even pro-life pregnancy centers to not only make abortion referrals but to sing the praises of abortion." And another bill is being proposed that would require taxpayers to pay for abortion.
Four Democratic state representatives from Chicago have introduced H.B. 3735. If the bill passes, heavy fines and jail terms could be lodged against sidewalk counselors found guilty of intimidating women entering an abortion clinic.
