Equal Rights Amendment
Equal Rights Amendment UpdateWe 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

Students for Life launches 'Sock it' campaign
Students for Life has launched a national campaign to draw attention to Congress failing to defund Planned Parenthood. Executive director Kristan Hawkins is spearheading the drive to hold the abortion mega-corporation and politicians to accountable.
"We're going to be going to mega-Planned Parenthood facilities in Aurora, Illinois, Denver, Colorado, St. Louis, Missouri," she says. "And we're also going to be going to key senators' offices talking about why the Senate should uphold its promise to defund Planned Parenthood."
Students for Life collected more than a hundred thousand baby socks leading up to the first phase of the Sock it 2 Planned Parenthood campaign.
"Right now," she says, "some of the socks are touring college campuses showing students the enormity of Planned Parenthood's abortion business."
After the campaign, the socks will be donated to pro-life pregnancy centers to help moms.
