Rally for Parental Notice April 10
Rockford group to stand and pray at busy city intersection
April 8, 2021
ROCKFORD—Concerned citizens in Rockford will hold a rally in defense of Illinois’ Parental Notice of Abortion Act on April 10 at noon. 
The rally will take place at the intersection of Riverside Boulevard and Mulford Road, and participants will pray and hold signs.
The event is being organized by the Rockford Family Initiative.
In February 2021, a bill titled “Parental Notice Abortion-Repeal” (HB 1797) was introduced into the Illinois legislature, and is currently in committee. 
If passed, this legislation would repeal the Parental Notice of Abortion Act of 1995, which simply requires that when a minor girl seeks to have an abortion, a parent or guardian be notified 48 hours before the procedure.
“The Parental Notice of Abortion Act ... provides essential safeguards against the evils of sexual abuse and human trafficking,” said Kevin Rilott, president of Rockford Family Initiative and a parishioner of St. Bernadette in Rockford.
 “If the law is repealed, when a young girl is raped or sexually abused, abortion could be used to cover-up the abuse and crime,” continued Rilott. 
“A teenage girl could be taken to any abortion mill in Illinois to have her child killed, and then the young girl taken home to possibly be abused again — with the abortion industry and abuser hiding all of this from the intimidated girl’s family,” he added.
The rally at Riverside and Mulford will begin at noon and end at 1 p.m. 
Participants are being asked to follow all state and local COVID-19 protocols.
