Abortion Notification Law Cleared

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Nov 4, 2009 6:40PM

The Illinois' Medical Disciplinary Board voted this morning to not extend the grace period set on the long-debated abortion notification law that was set to go into effect earlier this week, meaning the law was put into effect immediately. The law requires physicians to notify the parents/guardians of girls 17 years or younger who seek an abortion. [CBS 2]
