Abortion appears on the agenda of the Illinois Legislature

Abortion legislation has cropped up in the Illinois Legislature, as four bills were filed this week. House Bill 2467 and Senate Bill 1594 are identical pieces of legislation that would repeal the current parental notification of abortion law. Meanwhile,  House Bill 2495 and Senate Bill 1942 -- also identical to one another -- are both dubbed the Reproductive Health Act and make several changes to current abortion law, including defining abortion as a fundamental right.
