 1        AN ACT in relation to health.

 2        Be it enacted by the People of  the  State  of  Illinois,
 3    represented in the General Assembly:

 4        Section  5.  The  Consent by Minors to Medical Procedures
 5    Act is amended by changing Section 2 as follows:

 6        (410 ILCS 210/2) (from Ch. 111, par. 4502)
 7        Sec. 2.  Consent by  parent.   Any  parent,  including  a
 8    parent  who  is  a minor, may consent to the performance upon
 9    his or her child of a medical  or  surgical  procedure  by  a
10    physician  licensed  to  practice  medicine  and surgery or a
11    dental procedure by a licensed  dentist.  The  consent  of  a
12    parent  who  is a minor shall not be voidable because of such
13    minority, but, for such purpose, a  parent  who  is  a  minor
14    shall  be  deemed  to have the same legal capacity to act and
15    shall have the same powers and obligations as has a person of
16    legal age.
