Human Rights Watch and the ACLU of Illinois recently collaborated on a report - "The Only People It Really Affects Are the People It Hurts: The Human Rights Impacts of Parental Notice of Abortion in Illinois” - which concluded that PNA is dangerous for youth in the state, violates their human rights, and threatens their health and safety. We speak with Margaret Wurth from Human Rights Watch and Davina DiPaolo from ACLU of Illinois to discuss the report and why Illinois state legislators act swiftly to repeal this harmful law.

Update: As of June 2022, the Parental Notice of Abortion Act (PNA) has been repealed. Minors are no longer required to notify an adult family member in order to access an abortion in Illinois.
