Illinois Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment

ERA PASSED THE ILLINOIS SENATE

On April 11, 2018 the Illinois Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment as Senate Joint Resolution Constitution Amendment 4 (SJRCA4). The fight now goes to the House.

Eight Republican Senators voted for the ERA. Pro-life Illinoisans deserve political leaders who will clearly commit to the protection of innocent unborn children, and who will follow through on that commitment.

While we are disappointed with all 43 Senators who voted for abortion, we are gravely disturbed by those who solicited pro-life support and presented themselves as pro-life but voted for the ERA. Their vote was a vote in opposition to life and will not be ignored. The Illinois Federation for Right to Life PAC, Illinois Citizens for Life PAC, Illinois Family Action PAC, Illinois Family PAC, and Lake County Life PAC will not endorse or support any legislator that casts a vote for such a sweeping pro-abortion piece of legislation as the ERA.

Pro-Life Leader Calls for McConnell's Resignation Over Senate Inability to Defund Planned Parenthood

ObamaCare Repeal and Replace
On September 26th, it was announced that the Graham-Cassidy Repeal and Replace Obamacare bill was pulled due to three Republican defections, including Sen. John McCain of Arizona. That bill would have prevented over $500 million in tax dollars from going to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the nation.

The withdrawal of the bill kills any hope of defunding Planned Parenthood of Federal tax money until next year.

"I am extremely disappointed in the Republican members of the U.S. Senate who could not band together to get this bill done. It angers me that we have to fund Planned Parenthood for another year. This means Planned Parenthood will have the resources it needs to continue its killing spree, and thousands of lives will be lost because of it," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Co-Founder of the Center for Medical Progress, which exposed Planned Parenthood's participation in the illegal sale of organs and tissue obtained from aborted babies.

Defunding Planned Parenthood was a high priority for the Trump administration, which promised to redirect funds from the abortion giant to legitimate health care providers that do not participate in abortions.
