The fight to enforce parental notification laws

Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow -

Officials from a Christian legal society in Chicago are urging the Illinois Supreme Court to implement parental notification when a child is seeking an abortion.

A parental notification law was passed in Illinois nearly 15 years ago, but court challenges and other maneuvering has prevented implementation. Most recently, a state medical board gave abortion doctors a reprieve from a court order for 90 days before they will be required to comply.

Is the Parental Notification only dealing with abortion or all medical treatment for children (both girls & boys) 15 and over?

It specifically says for abortion. I believe they just mean abortion.
