Doctors in Illinois are no longer obligated to inform parents of an underage girl 48 hours before her scheduled abortion, according to reports.

The news comes after Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed a repeal of the state's law Friday.

Democrat Pritzker claimed the previous law punished the most vulnerable girls.

Those girls determined vulnerable were "victims of rape and physical abuse in unsafe homes."

Pritzker said, FOX 32 of Chicago reported:

"With reproductive rights under attack across the nation, Illinois is once again establishing itself as a leader in ensuring access to health care services."

The general assembly passed the Parental Notification Act in 1995 but didn't take effect until 20 years later due to being challenged in the courts.

The law required notification, not consent, as is the case in nearly two dozen other states.

FOX 32 reported:

The repeal received some criticism from some Republicans.

GOP state Sen. Jil Tracy said the relationship between and parent and their child is the "most basic human relationship that we know and it is a precious bond for a lifetime, most critical during a young girl’s, a minor’s, formative years.

"We have enough problems in the state without creating more wedges between children and their parents."

Republican state Rep. Avery Bourne said the repeal is "out of touch with a majority of Illinoisans" and claimed it puts girls in "danger," according to the Sun-Times.

"Parents deserve the right to know if their minor child is seeking any major medical procedure," he added.

"Instead, today, the Democrat majority has chosen to recklessly push those rights to the wayside."

Under the law, a Youth Health and Safety Advisory Working Group will be created to advocate for pregnant minors and those with kids and to combat human trafficking, FOX 32 reported.
