Lewis Reacts to Repeal of Parental Notification, Changes to Healthcare Right of Conscience Act

State Representative Seth Lewis (R-Bartlett) released the following statement after Illinois Democrats passed legislation to repeal parental notification of abortions and made changes to the Healthcare Right of Conscience Act. 

“Last night Illinois Democrats voted not only to take away a parent’s right to be notified if their minor daughter is seeking an abortion, but also to weaken a key protection of sincerely held religious and moral beliefs in Illinois. This government overreach to create a wedge between parents and children, and infringe on religious beliefs goes way too far and does nothing to make Illinois a place where people want to live and raise a family. I voted no on both of these measures.”
