ERA would Harm and ERASE Women

ERA activists have ramped up efforts in Virginia to make it the “38th state” needed for ratification. What these activists are ignoring is the fact that the chance to ratify the ERA expired in 1982. However, in light of recent movements such as #MeToo and #IBelieveHer, as well as the feminist push for “equality” and “women’s rights”, lawmakers across the nation are hesitant to fight against something that could potentially label them as “anti-woman”. That is why our lawmakers, even those in Congress, need to be equipped with facts and know that their constituency will hold them accountable.


Please contact Virginia legislators NOW to ask them to VOTE NO on ERA. You can simply say “To protect women and families, please reject the so-called Equal Rights Amendment, accurately described as the Everything Related to Abortion Act.”
