The Illinois legislature has voted to repeal a law requiring parental notification if a child under 18 seeks an abortion. The Democrat governor, J.B. Pritzker has vowed to sign it.

The Daily Wire reports:

The Illinois Senate voted to approve the repeal on Tuesday and the Illinois House narrowly passed the same bill on Wednesday, leaving just Pritzker to sign the measure repealing the state’s requirement that parents be notified when their child seeks to obtain an abortion.

Supporters of the law, the Chicago Tribune noted, were “eager to affirm Illinois’ position as a bastion of abortion rights in light of a Texas law enacted earlier this year that essentially bans the procedure after six weeks of pregnancy and as the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to hear a Mississippi case later this year that could undermine the landmark 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade.”

Illinois has been at the forefront of liberalizing abortion laws, particularly following the passage of a Texas measure, which went into effect on September 1, effectively outlawing abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, around six weeks of pregnancy. Clinics in Illinois have been advertising themselves as “safe havens” for abortion, according to My Stateline Illinois, attracting out-of-state patients who might have otherwise been prevented from ending the lives of their unborn children.

Pritzker has even touted the state’s abortion laws in open pitches to corporations considering moving to Illinois, per the Washington Examiner. He “wrote to the CEOs of several Texas businesses, including Dell and Hewlett Packard, to encourage them to move to Illinois after Texas passed a law restricting abortion access,” the outlet noted.

“The Illinois Parental Notice of Abortion Act has been on the books since 1995 when Republicans controlled the governor’s office and both chambers of the General Assembly. It didn’t go into effect, however, until 2013, when the state Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the law was constitutional after years of legal challenges,” the Tribune noted.

Are you suggesting we should assassinate the Pritsker administration? That’s rather drastic

However, what if a parent’s child gets an abortion without their permission and dies from the procedure? Why not hold those who permitted it responsible?

By the way, should the same go when and if they forcibly vaccinate children without parental consent? Where and when do we stop the fascist/socialist state from dehumanizing, debauching, and killing our children?

I truly fear for the survival of what’s let of a constitutional Republic.

I wish the media would play more the taped conversation of Pritzker and Bladgovich regarding the vacant seat for Illinois U.S. Senate seat a number of years back. Of course it remains buried in the files.

Abortion is not the business of government schools.

So what happens if your child leaves home and never comes back because they went and got an abortion and were killed, I can’t imagine the anguish a parent would feel! And the abortion clinic would now have to call the parents and report the death of that child, especially when they hate even calling the ambulance in the first place?? … This is evil, just pure unadulterated evil!

Just another attack in the war to destroy the American family. Destroying the family unit makes it much easier to control the people. It cuts off the individual from the aid of their family.

The first time a minor dies after an abortion (and you KNOW it’s going to happen), there will be absolute h*ll to pay. The parents should sue not only the doctor and agency, but every lawmaker who had a hand in this fiasco.

WHile I dislike ad hominem attacks, I am floored by Gov. Prickster’s uncanny resemblance in this photograph to Jabba the Hutt. I’m just sayin’…
