Court affirms parental rights, after 18 years! Decides notification law for minors is constitutional

WorldNetDaily: Casey Mattox, senior counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom noted that the law now is scheduled to take effect in five weeks. “The well-being of young women is more important than the bottom line of abortionists. All this law has sought to do since 1995 is to uphold the duty and desire of parents to protect their own children rather than allow them to be taken advantage of by others,” he said. “As the Illinois Supreme Court unanimously found, the law constitutionally encourages ‘an unmarried, pregnant minor to seek the help and advice of a parent or other adult family member in making the very important decision whether or not to bear a child.’ The ACLU kept this law from protecting women for more than 17 years, but that is now over.”
