It’s important that we trust the experiences of young people who have accessed abortion in Illinois.
We need to ensure that young people can access safe procedures, so they can make decisions about their health that are best for their lives.
All people, even if they haven’t turned 18, deserve access to information, healthcare, dignity, and safety. Forcing young people to notify a parent before getting an abortion can put them in harm’s way. Young people know this — and parents and other supportive adults know this, too.
