House to vote Thursday on removing ERA ratification deadline

The House takes up legislation on Thursday that would remove the deadline to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). Under legislation approved by Congress in 1972, states were given a seven-year deadline to ratify the ERA as a 28th amendment to the constitution. The deadline was later extended to 1982 by when only 35 states had ratified the ERA.

https://www.equalrightsamendment.org/resources This sounds great. Once this gets passed: 1. Women will be forced to sign up for selective service; we need more women willing to sacrifice their life to defend this country should the need for a draft arise. 2. I will be able to go to any of these colleges. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women%27s_colleges_in_the_United_States#List_of_women's_colleges_and_universities_in_the_United_States 3. I will be able to apply for any of these scholarships. https://www.scholarships.com/financial-aid/college-scholarships/scholarship-directory/gender/female (Check out that $80,000 scholarship!) 4. I will be able to join any of these organizations. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_women%27s_organizations 5.

The ERA is dead. They can vote on a new amendment if they want but the old ERA is dead.

like 5 states revoked their ratification. so if you add 1 you have to remove the other 5. you can't just change the rules after the game is over.
