When the Illinois General Assembly convenes for it’s executive veto session next week, it will look at repealing the parental notification of abortion act and potentially amending the healthcare right of conscious act. 

 

Rep. Avery Bourne of the 95th district says that repealing the parental notification of abortion act would be a mistake, because the act does not require parents consent. 

Rep. Bourne says that the act is effective in decreasing the number of abortions. 

The assembly passed the healthcare right of conscious act in the 90s. It is currently conflicting with Gov. JB Pritzker’s vaccine mandates. 

While it isn’t confirmed the Healthcare Right of Conscious Act will come up in the veto session, Rep. Bourne says that amending the act could send the assembly down the wrong path. 

Rep. Bourne says to call her office if you would like to voice your opinions on the veto session happening next week in Springfield. 

 

Rep. Bourne appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
