Illinois Parental Notification Law Halted for 2009

An Illinois circuit court judge has upheld a restraining order preventing enforcement of a parental notification law. The law, which was originally scheduled to go into effect on November 2, would require physicians to notify a parent or guardian before a minor obtains abortion care.

The restraining order will be in effect through the end of the year, as the judge waits for briefs from both sides before making a final determination about the law.
