Even the Chicago Tribune’s editors think Illinois’ abortion bills go too far
Illinois lawmakers are currently pushing legislation to make the state’s abortion laws even more extreme than New York’s. HB 2495 and would virtually eliminate all protections for preborn children, allow infanticide, remove conscience protection laws for health care workers, allow taxpayer funding for abortion, and more. HB 2467 would repeal the Parental Notice of Abortion Act of 1995, making it so that minors can obtain abortions without parental notification. The bills are so extreme that thousands of citizens flooded the Illinois state capitol building in protest — and now, even the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune (not known to be pro-life or conservative) is saying the pro-abortion legislators are going too far.

In an article published by the editorial board, the Chicago Tribune argued that the abortion laws in Illinois are already permissive enough, and don’t need to be relaxed more than they already are. Parental notification laws, they argued, are not restricting anyone’s abortion access, and gives parents the right to know what’s happening to their minor children.
