Most Reverend Bishop David Malloy issues statement on repeal of parental notification law

NCBC Statement on COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates (Amended)

AmmendedStatementOnVaccineMandates 23Aug21


Informed parents = protected daughters! The Parental Notice of Abortion Act is a proven, commonsense law that protects our minor daughters from medical injury and sexual exploitation, and keeps parents informed about their minor daughter’s wellbeing. Two identical bills have been introduced in the Illinois General Assembly to repeal this law – one in the Illinois House (HB 1797) and one in the Illinois Senate (SB 2190). Please contact your State legislators to save this law from being repealed and to keep parents in the loop! Act now! There is a strong possibility supporters of this bill will wait until the last days of this session, Memorial Day Weekend, to call it to committee and for a vote. Visit the Parents for Protection of Girls website at www.savepna.com. to contact your legislators in Springfield, and click on their “Contact your State Rep and Senator” button. It takes less than 5 minutes to contact both your IL State Senator and your IL State Representative.

Illinois Bishops Urge Action on Invest In Kids Act
