Cassidy introduces bill to ban parental notification for minors seeking abortion

By Bill Cameron, WLS-AM News


(CHICAGO)  Pro-choice legislators are backing a new proposal to do away with parental notification when a minor is seeking an abortion.

Parental notification sounds reasonable, but St. Rep. Kelly Cassidy argues it isn’t and she has a new bill to ban it.

“Kids are already having these conversations. When a teen is deciding not to have that conversation, it’s because there’s a really good reason, whether it is alienation from a parent, risk of harm from a parent. Those are the cases we need to protect for by repealing this law.”

But the other side says abortion is murder and parental notification is the least we can do.
