Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

750 ILCS 46/704

    (750 ILCS 46/704)
    Sec. 704. Withdrawal of consent of intended parent or donor. An intended parent or donor may withdraw consent to use his or her gametes in a writing or legal pleading with notice to the other participants. An intended parent who withdraws consent under this Section prior to the insemination or embryo transfer is not a parent of any resulting child. If a donor withdraws consent to his or her donation prior to the insemination or the combination of gametes, the intended parent is not the parent of any resulting child. If the intended parent or parents no longer wish to use any remaining cryopreserved fertilized ovum for medical purposes, the terms of the most recent informed consent of the intended parent or parents executed at the fertility center or a marital settlement agreement under a judgment of dissolution of marriage, judgment of legal separation, or judgment of dissolution of civil union governs the disposition of the fertilized ovum.
