Illinois Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment


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.

Illinois just proved there’s still room for a Pro-Life congressmen in the Democratic Party

Rep Dan Lipinski Campaign
Rep. Dan Lipinski (pictured), who has represented his southwest Chicago district since 2005, won a tight primary race on Tuesday night against progressive challenger Marie Newman.

As of this Wednesday morning Rep. Dan Lipinski won the Illinois 2018 Primary with 50.9% over Marie Newman with only 49.1%.  Still it was a very close race.

This is a huge win for the pro-life movement, which proves that protecting innocent life in the womb need not be matter of partisan politics.
