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

OB/GYN group blasts $600M global abortion fund: Women need help having babies, not killing them
MCI has spent over 20 years working with mothers and children in some of the world’s poorest regions. In our decades of experience, we have seen that the only coherent way to reduce maternal and perinatal mortalities is to provide essential obstetrical care that women take for granted here in Canada. Causes of maternal mortality are well known and include; postpartum haemorrhage (35%), Hypertension (18%), Indirect causes (HIV, anaemia, malaria & non-communicable diseases) (18%), other direct causes (ectopic pregnancy, pulmonary embolism, obstructed labour) (11%), amounting to 91%. Deaths occur during the last three months of pregnancy, during labour and delivery and two weeks afterwards and are preventable with essential obstetrics, which includes comprehensive prenatal care with identification of mothers as high risk mothers, safe clean facilities, adequately equipped in which to deliver, and properly trained health professionals, midwives and doctors.
