Bill For Repeal Of Notification For Abortions Goes To Governor's Desk

A previous law that required minors under the age of 18 to give notification to a parent or guardian now goes to the Governor’s desk for repeal. 


Representative Avery Bourne spoke to Legislators on Wednesday about the current law that requires minors to give notifications to a parent or guardian before getting an abortion. Representative Bourne says it’s very hypocritical.



Representative Bourne says that this isn’t an anti-abortion statement. It’s a consent statement. It’s letting a parent/guardian know. It is a common-sense bill. 



Representative Anna Moeller says that children will tell their parents, and if they don’t there is a reason why.



Representative Bourne urged the House to vote no on the repeal, stressing that there are children as young as 12 having abortions and that a parent should know what is going on with their 12-year-old.



The House voted 62-51 in favor of passing.  If it gets signed, it won’t go into effect until June 1st, 2022. Governor JB Pritzker has already said he will sign the bill.
