The ERA will erode our constitution. It was not ratified as required; it now must be discarded. All people have the same equal rights secured under the constitution already. Ratifying such an amendment will set a precedent signifying that people may not already hold their inalienable rights secured by the constitution. It could then be argued that if the constitution is not amended to secure specific rights to people, that they aren’t already owed them. That is a dangerous precedent to set! Don’t be stupid!
