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.
