She's got the far left covered...

Chicago Tribune reporter Michael Higgins always does an admirable job of writing abortion-related stories without a left-wing slant. His story today about DuPage County State's Attorney Joe Birkett (former client) prodding Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan to do her job on the parental notification issue is no exception.

Rich Miller is inviting comments on the Trib story.

An interesting quote from Madigan's spokeswoman notes that Madigan is still researching the issue and has met with two advocacy groups. Both are far, far left on the political spectrum.
They have met with representatives from the ACLU of Illinois, Planned Parenthood and the offices of Birkett and Cook County State's Atty. Richard Devine, (Cara) Smith said. They also have talked to court clerks around the state.
It's fine that Madigan meets with the ACLU and one of her biggest campaign contributors, Planned Parenthood, which has given her more than $150,000 over the years. Those groups, of course, demand unconditional loyalty to the far left position on abortion: no reasonable restrictions allowed. That's fine รข€” every group with interest in the issue should have a say. Wonder if any pro-life groups were consulted?
