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.

Radical politico set to assume top spot at Planned Parenthood

Radical politico set to assume top spot at Planned Parenthood, Dawn Laguens

As Cecile Richards wraps up her time as president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America (she officially retires next month), Dawn Laguens (pronounced LaGANZ) has emerged as the interim public face of Planned Parenthood.

According to Laguens' official biography on Planned Parenthood's website: "Ms. Laguens brings decades of experience in campaign strategy and message integration to Planned Parenthood, and is a CLIO award-winning writer and director. She has been one of the leading ballot measure consultants in America, having worked on a wide range of critical social issues. As the founder and president of LKK Partners, her clients included governors, members of the U.S. Senate and House, EMILY's List, the National Education Association, the Nature Conservancy, the Natural Resources Defense Council, Basic Rights Oregon, and Freedom to Marry, to mention just a few."

In other words. Laguens was brought into Planned Parenthood in 2010 not for her healthcare knowledge or experience, but for her political acumen.
