SB 2190 Sen. Sims/HB 1797 Rep. Moeller
Repeal PNA Law VOTE YES
Repeals harmful barriers to reproductive healthcare for young people contained in the Parental Notice of Abortion law which requires a healthcare provider to notify an adult family member living in the home or legal guardian at least 48 hours before performing an abortion for a patient under 18. It would also repeal the problematic judicial bypass process for those who cannot notify an adult family member. Decades of research and experience demonstrate that forced parental involvement laws like this one endanger young people and serves no valid purpose. The anti-choice lobby is out-calling us so PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL.
