/ -- Concerned Women for America of Illinois is pleased that the Illinois Supreme Court has moved expeditiously to create the rules for the Parental Notice of Abortion Act of 1995.
The matter can now be brought before a federal judge by the Illinois Attorney General in order to remove the injunction on this law, dissolving the roadblock that has been in effect for ten years due to the lack of these rules. We trust that this will also be without delay, and that the rules, as written, will pass constitutional muster.
CWA of Illinois State Director, Karen Hayes, said “We look forward to the day soon when the law can go into effect, and we are a step closer in finally recognizing the importance of parents in their children’s lives, and especially at times when they are vulnerable to exploitation.”
CWA of Illinois was one of ten organizations which recently filed a Supplemental Petition to the Illinois Supreme Court, submitted by The Thomas More Society, requesting that these rules be created. Concerned Women for America is the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization.
