Change isn't always a good thing

I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)Democrats in Illinois want to make some big changes to the state’s current abortion laws.

The left fared quite well in The Prairie State in the November election, and Mary Kate Knorr, who heads Illinois Right to Life Action, says they are now determined to make abortion more readily available.

"They're for sure going to try and get rid of our parental notification law, which requires that clinics notify a parent or guardian of a minor girl who comes into the clinic seeking an abortion within 48 hours," Knorr reports.

She points out that parental notification is not the same as parental consent. The measure is designed to protect girls who, for example, are pressured into an abortion after being molested. The Thomas More Society was part of a 15-year legal battle for the law until the state Supreme Court finally placed it on the books.

In addition do undoing that, the left is also proposing to provide "opportunity to have non-doctors perform abortions. So nurses can perform abortions, or physician assistants," Knorr explains. "Also, it sets them up, in the event that Roe vs. Wade is overturned, it wouldn't automatically be a crime in the state of Illinois for a doctor to perform an abortion."

Even though both houses of the legislature are dominated by Democrats and so-called progressives, Knorr believes the elected officials serving in more conservative districts offer a chance to defeat the measures.
