IL Supreme Court Upholds Abortion Notification Law


Planned Parenthood says it is “disappointed” by Thursday’s Illinois Supreme Court ruling that will allow the state to begin enforcing its parental notification law, which has been tied up in legal challenges since it was passed in 1995.

 

Starting next month, parents must receive 48 hours notice before their underage daughter can obtain an abortion.

 

Planned Parenthood says that won’t be an issue in most cases, but could pose a serious obstacle for some teens who come from violent or abusive homes.

 

The organization says it will try to assist teens by helping them go through the courts to seek a waiver to the notification requirement.
