ERA Thumbnail Analysis
  1. ERA is a fraud; it pretends to benefit women and "put women in the Constitution," but women would receive no benefit from it whatsoever, and the Constitution has been gender-neutral ever since it was written.

  2. ERA would require 18-year-old girls to register for the draft and make them subject to conscription and combat duty just like men, and the American people are not going to tolerate this.

  3. ERA would transfer large areas of law, now within the domain of the states, to the Federal Government, such as marriage, divorce, family law, child custody, schools, insurance, prisons, etc., and the Federal Government already has grabbed too much power.
