44th Annual Forget-Me-Not Dinner

Come join us for our 44th annual Benefit Dinner on THURSDAY, October 6th at the
Carlisle, 435 Butterfield Road in Lombard. 

 We are delighted to welcome the Sisters of Life who are celebrating their 25th year of existence. They were founded in 1991 by John Cardinal O’Connor for the protection and enhancement of the sacredness of every human life.  In these troubling times we know you will enjoy their joyful message of hope.  

Please note the new day of the event.

Our Witness for Life Award this year will be presented to Pastor Emeritus Erwin Lutzer of The Moody Church.  His radio and internet ministries and total commitment to the reverence for life make him a well deserved recipient.  He has authored over 30 books and is a welcome speaker on the lecture circuit.

The social hour begins at 6:30 p.m. and dinner is served at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $75 ($85 at the door), tables of ten are $700, and clergy and student prices are $35.  Tickets are held at the door.  You can also support ICL’s pro-life mission by taking an ad or having your name listed in our beautiful commemorative ad book.  Ads range from $225 for a full page to $60 for an eighth page.  You can have your name listed ranging from $100 (Benefactor) to $15 (Friend).  Click -Here- for the ad contract.  Please print it out and mail it with your check to Illinois Citizens for Life, 5021 Fairview Avenue, Downers Grove, 60515.  

We are extremely grateful to our faithful supporters who have stood with us for so many years in this battle to restore the dignity of every human life.  Thank you.

The ERA Harms Our Unborn Children

Senate Joint Resolution Constitutional Amendment 75 (ERA – SJRCA 75) states in its ARTICLE:

Section 1. Equality of rights under law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State on account of sex.

Section 2: The Congress shall have the power to enforce by appropriate legislation the provisions of this article.

 

The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA – SJRCA75) is a poorly worded amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would restrict all laws and practices that make any distinctions based on gender.    Under the ERA men and women could not be treated differently, even if the different treatment is due to physical differences.
