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.

Ruling May Create a Right to Abortion for Anyone on Earth who Enters the U.S. Illegally

Federal District Judge Laurel Beeler
UPDATE: U.S. Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler dismissed a request by the ACLU for a temporary restraining order to force HHS to either transport an undocumented pregnant 17-year-old teen to an abortion clinic or allow here to be taken there. Click here for more

Federal District Judge Laurel Beeler is hearing an emergency request from the ACLU of Northern California to order the Office of Refugee Resettlement to allow a pregnant undocumented teenager–“Jane Doe”–to leave ORR custody to have an abortion.

The ACLU’s request for a temporary restraining order allowing the abortion to go forward is opposed by the Trump Administration, Ken Paxton, the attorney general of Texas, and six other attorneys general—from Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, and South Carolina.

“No federal court has ever declared that unlawfully-present aliens with no substantial ties to this country have a constitutional right to abortion on demand,” Paxton said. “If ‘Doe’ prevails in this case, the ruling will create a right to abortion for anyone on earth who enters the U.S. illegally. And with that right, countless others undoubtedly would follow. Texas must not become a sanctuary state for abortions.”
