The Illinois Supreme Court has announced that on Thursday morning, it will hand down its decision in Hope Clinic for Women v. Adams. Hope Clinic is a challenge to the constitutionality of the Illinois Parental Notice of Abortion Act. Because the challenge in Hope Clinic was brought solely under the Illinois constitution, the case raises interesting issues of the degree to which the state constitutional rights of privacy and gender equality are coextensive with, or perhaps broader than, Federal constitutional rights. Our detailed discussion and analysis of the facts and lower court rulings in Hope Clinic is here. Our report on the oral argument is here, and the video of the oral argument is here.
