The ACLU of Illinois is working to improve access to quality reproductive health care, removing unnecessary hurdles and obstacles. The Illinois General Assembly has two measures aimed at placing decision making on reproductive health care in the hands of the individual and their doctor.
The Reproductive Health modernizes Illinois abortion law with an approach based on medical standards and the best interest of the patient. The second bill repeals Illinois Parental Notice of Abortion Act, which forces minors who face an unintended pregnancy to notify a parent if they choose to terminate. The law ignores research showing that most minors seeking abortion share their decision. Those minors who do not have good reasons, including abuse and neglect.
