STOP House Bill 2467 - A Repeal of the Parental Notice of Abortion Act - An attack on Illinois Families



STOP House Bill 2467
A Repeal of the Parental Notice of Abortion Act
An attack on Illinois Families



If HB2467 becomes law it would repeal the Parental Notification of Abortion Act of 1995.

The Act:

        -Is constitutional per the Illinois Supreme Court and the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals

        -Mandates notification of a parent, grandparent or legal guardian when a minor seeks an abortion
       
        -Provides a judicial waiver of notice for minors that are victims of physical or sexual abuse
       
        -Has caused a decline in minor abortions by 55% from 2013 when first enforced to 2017 according to the Illinois Department of Public Health statistics (adults declined 15%)

        -Has not triggered any reported incidents of abuse or neglect of a minor as a result of notification to the minor’s parent.

The Moms and Dads in Illinois do not deserve to have their parental rights undermined by their government. 

Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana and Kentucky all have parental involvement laws.  If the Parental Notification Act of 1995 is repealed Illinois will become the Midwest go-to-state for minors to obtain a secret abortion. 

Please ask your State Representative to vote against HB2467.
