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.

775 ILCS 55/1-25

    (775 ILCS 55/1-25)
    Sec. 1-25. Reporting of abortions performed by health care professionals.
    (a) A health care professional may provide abortion care in accordance with the health care professional's professional judgment and training and based on accepted standards of clinical practice consistent with the scope of his or her practice under the Medical Practice Act of 1987, the Nurse Practice Act, or the Physician Assistant Practice Act of 1987. An advanced practice registered nurse or physician assistant as defined in this Act may perform aspiration abortion procedures that do not require general anesthesia, consistent with their training and standards of clinical practice and, if applicable, consistent with any collaborative agreement. If the health care professional determines that there is fetal viability, the health care professional may provide abortion care only if, in the professional judgment of the health care professional, the abortion is necessary to protect the life or health of the patient.
    (b) A report of each abortion performed by a health care professional shall be made to the Department on forms prescribed by it. Such reports shall be transmitted to the Department on a quarterly basis.
    (c) The abortion reporting forms prescribed by the Department shall not request or require information that identifies a patient or health care professional by name or any other identifying information, and the Department shall secure anonymity of all patients and health care professionals.
    (d) All reports received by the Department pursuant to this Section shall be treated as confidential and exempt from the Freedom of Information Act. Such reports shall not be admissible as evidence or discoverable in any action of any kind, in any court, or before any tribunal, board, agency or person. Access to such reports shall be limited to authorized Department staff who shall use the reports for statistical purposes only. Such reports must be destroyed within 2 years after date of receipt. The Department may make aggregate data derived from the reports publicly available so long as such disclosure does not reveal any identifying information about a patient or health care professional.
