There is a bill in the Illinois Senate right now that would remove the Parental Notification requirements for minors to have an abortion: (SB 1594)
Witness slips were filed on this bill, 1703 supported allowing your minor daughter to get an abortion without your knowledge.
7752 signed in opposition.
The usual suspects don’t care that your minor child wants an abortion. This life changing event won’t be explained, Planned Parenthood just wants the money.
One signer claimed to represent 34,000 members of Local 881 – United Food and Commercial Workers:
I wonder if the membership knows, there is nothing on their website stating this is the official position of the union: http://www.local881ufcw.org/legislative.html
Here’s where it gets interesting. Below are people who signed in support of removing parental notification. At least one implies the entire League of Women Voters favors not being told if their minor daughters want abortions. Their daughters could die, be mentally scared for life, be left unable to have other children, or have gotten pregnant by a person who should be prosecuted – but the LWV doesn’t think parents should know.
The local League of Women Voters think they have the right to co-sponsor local non-partisan debates and investigate other local issues like affordable housing and poverty.
Next time they issue a report, remember: These are the same people who think parents shouldn’t have any rights.
