Save the Parental Notice of Abortion Law
 
 

Call to Action

 

The Illinois General Assembly is going to vote this week on an attempt to repeal the Parental Notice of Abortion Act. Please contact your legislator and ask them to oppose House Bill 370 Senate Amendment 1

It should be noted that the existing law does not call for parental consent and offers exemptions, including when a girl states in writing that she is a victim of sexual abuse, neglect or physical abuse by an adult family member. 

 

The time to act is now. Read the letter from all six bishops in Illinois urging action. 

 

The existing law makes common sense. Consider the following:

  • Under current law, it is illegal for minors to use an indoor tanning bed.  Before that prohibition was implemented on Jan. 1, 2014, minors between the ages of 14 and 17 had to have parental consent. 
  • Under current law, it is illegal for a minor to get a tattoo or body piercing without parental consent.
  • Minors cannot vote, buy cigarettes, serve in the military or purchase lottery tickets, but they will be able to get an abortion at any time, for any reason, without their parents' knowledge. 
  • Medical studies show brain development in minors is not complete.  This is why so many of our laws require parental involvement in the decisions of their minor children.

Email or call your state representative and state senator by visiting our Action Center, and urge them to oppose repealing the Parental Notice of Abortion.
