Parental Notification – Your Support Needed, New Videos Posted

Eric exhorts the crowd on Nov 17 Eric has asked everyone to attend Tuesday’s City Council meeting to support Parental Notification. The City Council will vote on a non-binding resolution to be sent to Springfield calling on the state government to finally enforce the 1995 Parental Notice Act. This is the first time we actually have an item on the agenda, and it is important to have as much pro-life support as possible. The meeting will be held in the City Council Chambers at 44 E. Downer Pl. at 6 p.m., November 27. Please sign up to speak by calling the City Clerk at 630-844-3615, and saying that you want to talk about the parental notice resolution that’s on the agenda [PDF]. I’ve posted videos below of pro-lifers speaking on this topic – let’s build upon these and have a strong turnout tomorrow in support of life and parental notification!eric-talk-2-cropped.jpg During November’s monthly Planned Parenthood protest, Eric explains the importance of Tuesday’s City Council meeting and calls on Pro-lifers to attend. heidi-cropped.jpgHeidi Brooker—always articulate, clever and wise—says those who oppose parental notice believe that a massive corporation profiting from abortion cares about children but their parents are thugs ready to harm them. She contrasts a 14 year-old girl who can get an abortion at the behest of her 30-year-old boyfriend with a 14-year-old boy who cannot get a vasectomy at the behest of his 30-year-old girlfriend. “Somebody at Planned Parenthood must be Catholic because they don’t do vasectomies.” roger-cropped.jpgRoger Earl explains that parental notice isn’t about “communication”, it’s about protecting children. Thank you, Roger! The point isn’t to “get parents and kids talking,” but to make sure parents know about something as important and deeply connected to their parental responsibilities as a child’s abortion. jeff-cropped.jpgJT Eschbach compares those who oppose parental notice to those adults who help children get away with things behind their parents’ backs, like helping them get alcohol.
