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.

Ohio has become one of the most pro-life states in the country

Ohio has become one of the most pro-life states in the country
When people think of pro-life states, they’re likely to think of a red state in the south — Texas, perhaps, or Mississippi. But one of the most pro-life states in the country has been a big surprise: Ohio, the swing state in the midwest. In recent years, Ohio has banned abortion on babies with Down syndrome, introduced a bill that recognized preborn babies as human beings, and passed a 20-week abortion ban. And women must be given an ultrasound and, if their preborn baby’s heart is already beating, the opportunity to see it. The legislature is also currently considering mandating burial or cremation for preborn babies killed in abortion.

This has upset Christina Cauterucci, who wrote an op-ed at Slate, complaining that state lawmakers are too “extreme” for a purple state. And while Cauterucci makes sure to argue that most Ohioans — like most Americans — want abortion to be legal, she completely ignores that most polls have found that people favor heavy restrictions on abortion. So is Ohio truly extreme? Not in the least.
