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

Oregon Gov. Brown signs bill forcing taxpayer funding of abortion

On Tuesday Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed House Bill 3391 into law. HB 3391 solidifies Oregon’s unfortunate status as the most radically pro-abortion state in America. Abortions must now be covered 100 percent by all insurance policies, without a copay or deductible.

HB 3391 also establishes a $10 million fund for illegal immigrants’ reproductive “care,” of which $500 thousand is estimated to be spent covering abortions.

Unfortunately, abortion-supporting legislators included an emergency clause in the bill preventing it from being sent before voters. However, work is already taking place with lawyers on a legal challenge to the bill. As this effort develops will keep you up-to-date.
