Equal Rights Amendment

Equal Rights Amendment Update
We 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

RU486 over the counter a 'recipe for disaster'

A little less than a year ago, the Food and Drug Administration eased restrictions on use of the drug, reduced the dosage, extended use of it from the seventh to the tenth week of pregnancy, and loosened qualifications for prescribers.

"They've got a group of folks together who signed this article in the New England Journal of Medicine arguing that they want it to be able to be sold at retail pharmacies or be available through online mail order instead of having to go through procedures that are there for the safety of women," he says.

The group of doctors call themselves the Mifeprex REMS Study Group – and according to the NRLC spokesman, there's nothing in their arguments dealing with making the abortion drug safer for women.
