Here is the information you need about the latest abortion legislation that has been introduced into the Illinois Legislature, and how you can send in opposition to it. This information was forwarded to us by the Diocese:
Abortion legislation has cropped up in the Illinois Legislature, as four bills were filed this week.
House Bill 2467 and Senate Bill 1594 would both repeal the parental notification of abortion law. Meanwhile, House Bill 2495 and Senate Bill 1942 are both dubbed the Reproductive Health Act and make several changes to current abortion law.
HB 2467 and SB 1594 repeal the Illinois Parental Notice of Abortion Act, which requires a parent or legal guardian be notified when a minor seeks an abortion. The law includes a waiver for those children who have been physically or sexually abused. Although the law was passed in 1995, legal wranglings barred it from taking effect until July 2013, when the Illinois Supreme Court issued a unanimous ruling implementing the law.
HB 2495 and SB 1942 repeal the state’s ban on partial birth abortions, define abortion as a fundamental right, remove abortion clinics from regulations for serious medical procedures, and remove the requirement that only doctors can perform abortions. These bills include other changes to current law regarding abortion, and the Catholic Conference is still analyzing those changes for their impact.
Catholic Conference of Illinois opposes all four pieces of legislation in their current form.
All people can send in opposition to this legislation by visiting the Catholic Conference of Illinois website at:
