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

Texas permanently bans taxpayer funding of abortion

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (center) signed a bill today that prevents taxpayers from having to pay for abortions through their insurance plans.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed on Tuesday, a bill into law that will keep Texans from having to pay for elective abortions through their insurance plans and restrict state funding for abortion insurance.

"As a firm believer in Texas values I am proud to sign legislation that ensures no Texan is ever required to pay for a procedure that ends the life of an unborn child,” Gov. Abbott said. “This bill prohibits insurance providers from forcing Texas policy holders to subsidize elective abortions. I am grateful to the Texas legislature for getting this bill to my desk, and working to protect innocent life this special session.”
