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

Planned Parenthood chasing money, say ex-officials
Ramona Trevino, a former manager of a Texas Planned Parenthood facility, became disenchanted and left the organization. She said in a Live Action video that the amount of time spent with patients was drastically reduced. The result was demonstrated especially among girls who were not appropriately instructed on the use of birth control pills. Sue Thayer directed two Planned Parenthood clinics in Iowa and told Live Action that as the quota for abortions increased, the amount of time per patient was reduced.
Republicans are working to reallocate over a half-billion dollars from Planned Parenthood to local health clinics that are not so busy doing abortions.
