Pro-abortion Equal Rights Amendment dies in Virginia House committee

Pro-abortion Equal Rights Amendment dies in Virginia House committee
Pro-lifers breathed a sigh of relief Tuesday as a campaign to resurrect the so-called Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) by Virginia Democrats was halted in a state House subcommittee.

Last week, the state Senate voted 26-14 to pass the ERA and send it to the state House of Delegates, with five Republicans joining every Democrat in the chamber. If passed it would not require a governor’s signature (though pro-abortion Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat, has already expressed his support).

But a subcommittee of the House Privileges and Elections committee voted 4-2 to kill the ERA, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports. The vote fell along party lines with Republicans voting against the ERA and Democrats for it.
