Rabine: Legislature must keep parental notification

WOODSTOCK, Ill. – Illinois Republican candidate for governor, Gary Rabine, is calling on lawmakers to reject efforts to overturn the state’s parental notification laws during the Veto Session.

Far-left extremists in the House and the Senate are pushing legislation to repeal Illinois’s current law requiring parental or guardian notification whenever a minor 17 years and younger seeks to have an abortion.

“The war on families in Illinois continues,” Rabine said. “Minors need parental consent to get their ears pierced, go on school field trips or open a checking account, but the far left wants to allow minors to get abortions without parental notification? This is an assault on families. It is wrong. The advocates behind this legislation know it is wrong. Lawmakers must stand up for the rights of parents.”

According to media reports, JB Pritzker supports repealing Illinois’s parental notification law.

“I’m in favor of repealing PNA,” Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker said last week. “I don’t know whether the Legislature will bring this up over the two weeks of veto session, but I have stood in favor of it since I was elected.”Rabine said a ban on parental notification requirements would be dead on arrival if he were governor.

“If such legislation were to cross my desk, it would immediately be vetoed,” Rabine said. “I will stand with Illinois families.”


Rabine, 58, is a business builder and Chairman of The Rabine Group of companies, father of 4 and grandfather of 3. He and his wife grew up and raised their family in Lake and McHenry County Illinois. Started in the paving business shortly after graduating high school, this became the Rabine Group of companies, which today does business in all 50 states and is headquartered out of Cook County in Schaumburg.
