Today, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signed House Bill 270, which repeals the state’s Parental Notice of Abortion Act. In response, Pro-Life Action League executive director Eric Scheidler issued the following statement:
J.B. Pritzker has betrayed Illinois parents today by repealing our state’s Parental Notice of Abortion Act, which has saved thousands of young women from making the horrible choice to abort their children. Sexual predators will celebrate, as it will now be easier to have evidence of their crimes swept away by the abortionist. Adding insult to injury, Pritzker signed this bill late on a Friday, just a week before Christmas, avoiding any public protest. Illinois parents will not forget this act of cowardice and injustice in next year’s gubernatorial election.
