Fwd: Congress to vote on proabortion ERA shortcut scheme

> The pro-abortion movement is trying to “air drop” the 1972 Equal Rights Amendment into the U.S. Constitution!
>
> If their unprecedented scheme is successful, pro-life legislation nationwide could be destroyed.
>
> During the week of March 15, 2021, the U.S. House of Representatives will take up a measure that attempts to revive the long-expired Equal Rights Amendment. This unprecedented measure poses a dire threat to all pro-life laws and policies, state and federal. You must act now.
>
> The Equal Rights Amendment is a constitutional amendment that Congress proposed in 1972, before the Supreme Court legalized abortion in Roe v. Wade (Jan. 1973). The ERA has a 7-year ratification deadline that expired 42 years ago. But now, the Democrat-controlled Congress will take up a measure (House Joint Resolution 17) that claims to retroactively remove the deadline, and to magically “air drop” the ERA instantly into the U.S. Constitution!If this unprecedented scheme works, virtually all pro-life legislation nationwide might be permanently wiped out.The National Organization for Women says the ERA “could negate hundreds” of pro-life laws. NARAL says “the ERA would reinforce the constitutional right to abortion…[it] would require judges to strike down anti-abortion laws…” Leaders of numerous other pro-abortion organizations, including Planned Parenthood, have made similar statements.
> Please click here for instructions on how to make a quick phone call to the office of your U.S. House member, to urge him or her to oppose this sweeping pro-abortion resolution (House Joint Resolution 17). You will be shown quick talking points that you can use during your call.
