(720 ILCS 513/10)
Partial-birth abortions prohibited.
Any person who knowingly
performs a partial-birth abortion and thereby kills a human fetus or infant is
a Class 4 felony. This Section does not apply to a partial-birth abortion that
is necessary to save the life of a mother because her life is endangered by a
disorder, physical illness, or physical injury, including a life-endangering
condition caused by or arising from the pregnancy itself, provided that no
other medical procedure would
suffice for that purpose.
