Abortion Survey

Illinois law currently requires physicians to notify a parent, grandparent, or legal guardian of a minor at least 48 hours before performing an abortion upon that minor. Illinois law allows a minor to go to court to avoid the notification in certain circumstances. Supporters of the law say that minors must notify a parent in other situations, such as medical care, and that obtaining an abortion should be no different. Opponents of the law say that it places an unnecessary burden on a minor trying to obtain an abortion.
