CWA OF ILLINOIS APPLAUDS PARENTAL NOTICE RULING

CWA OF ILLINOIS APPLAUDS PARENTAL NOTICE RULING

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 29, 2010

CONTACT: Colleen Nolan, State Director
708-349-6828

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Illinois applauds the just decision of Judge Daniel A. Riley of the Cook County Circuit Court to protect our daughters by upholding our 1995 Illinois parental notification law.

Parental notification laws have historically been beneficial not only for parents’ God-given and legal responsibilities, but also for our daughters/young mothers considering abortion.

CWA of Illinois State Director, Colleen Nolan, noted “It’s time for Illinois to recognize the natural rights of parents to protect their children. After over 35 years of legalized abortion in this country, it is now abundantly evident that abortion really does hurt women.”

In addition, parental notification laws save babies by reducing the number of abortions. Both sides of the aisle agree that reducing abortions is a positive outcome of parental notification. In 1997, Hillary Clinton stated, “I believe in parental notification. In general, I think families should be part of helping their children through this.”(Source: Unique Voice, p.186-87 Feb 3, 1997)
