AMARILLO, Texas, Sept. 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, today urged the Illinois Supreme Court to act swiftly in issuing rules for a parental notification for abortion law passed in 1995. The Court has unanimously voted to reverse its stance of over ten years ago, when the Illinois high court refused to write judicial waiver appeals rules that would have let the law take effect.
"I applaud the current court's vote and urge it to issue the parental notification rules as soon as possible to protect Illinois families," said Fr. Pavone. "Most states have parental involvement laws regarding abortions performed on minors. There is no reason Illinois should be different."
