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

ACTION ALERT - Break the pro-abortion Supreme Court filibuster

Judge Neil Gorsuch
Judge Neil Gorsuch
President Trump has nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, to fill the seat vacated a year ago by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. We expect that the full Senate will take up the nomination immediately. But most Senate Democrats are threatening to filibuster the Gorsuch nomination!  This obstructionism is being demanded by militantly pro-abortion advocacy groups.

Republican senators hold a 52-48 Senate majority.  It is essential that the Republicans take whatever procedural steps are necessary to break through the Democratic obstructionism.  The critical Senate roll call votes are likely to occur on Thursday, April 6, or Friday, April 7.  To read National Right to Life's letter to senators urging them to take the steps necessary to break the filibuster, click here.
