Abortion is health care - not a crime. The Reproductive Health Act and the repeal of Parental Notice of Abortion places decision making in the hands of a patient and their health care provider – where it belongs – rather than mandate how care should be given and threatening prison time for doctors providing care to their patients.

The Reproductive Health Act (RHA) recognizes reproductive health care as a fundamental right and repeals the Illinois Abortion Act of 1975. Without the RHA, if  Roe is overturned Illinois could have:

  • Mandatory spousal consent for abortion
  • Twenty-four hour waiting periods
  • Bans on assisted reproductive techniques like in vitro
  • Doctor consent committees 

The repeal of the Parental Notice of Abortion Act, would remove the requirement that a health care provider notify parent, legal guardian, grandparent, or step-parent living in the household at least 48 hours prior to performing an abortion for a patient under 18. A family conversation shouldn't be legislated. Most young people already seek the counsel of their parent or guardian when it comes to a decision like this. If they don't, there's usually a real good reason.

Time is running out, call your representative now. Urge them to vote yes on the Reproductive Health Act and the repeal of the Parental Notice of Abortion Act.

What to Say (Call Script)

Call Script

Hi, my name is __________, and I live in ___________.

I'm calling to ask my representative to publicly support and vote YES on two important bills:  the Reproductive Health Act and the repeal of the Parental Notice of Abortion Act.

The Reproductive Health Act and the Repeal of the Parental Notice of Abortion Act are two bills with one goal – treat abortion as health care.  If signed into law, both pieces of legislation will greatly improve access to reproductive health care in Illinois by removing undue burdens on people seeking abortion care. Extreme politicians are introducing unconstitutional bills with one goal -  to ban safe, legal abortion. With the current make-up of the Supreme Court and new threats to safe, legal abortion it is critical that Illinois lead in ensuring reproductive freedom is a reality.

I support the Reproductive Health Act and the repeal of the Parental Notice of Abortion Act because if and when to become a parent should be left to a woman and her health care provider.

[add your own story, if you like].

I expect my representative to vote YES because abortion is health care and a family conversation shouldn't be legislated.
