Legislation, Bypass of Parental Input into Abortion - Minor (Pre-Dobbs)

Under 750 Ill. Comp. Stat. § 70/25(b), minors younger than 17 years of age seeking an abortion had to provide their parent or guardian with notice of the abortion but could seek judicial bypass of the notice.  In the judicial bypass proceeding, the minor had to be provided with counsel upon request.  This law was repealed in 2021.




Note: Since the U.S. Supreme Court decision's in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, 142 S.Ct. 2228 (2022), the laws governing abortion are complicated and rapidly changing.  This major development may not be current since Dobbs.  For up-to-date information about the status of abortion by state, please see Center for Reproductive Rights, After Roe Fell: Abortion Laws by State.
