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.

210 ILCS 85/6.27

    (210 ILCS 85/6.27)
    Sec. 6.27. Intended parent; delivery room.
    (a) As used in this Section, "gestational surrogate", "gestational surrogacy contract", and "intended parent" have the meanings given to those terms in Section 10 of the Gestational Surrogacy Act.
    (b) If a hospital has a gestational surrogacy contract on file for a gestational surrogate or has otherwise received the gestational surrogacy contract from a gestational surrogate, the hospital may not deny an intended parent entry into the delivery room where the gestational surrogate is being induced or in labor, except as provided under subsection (c).
    (c) A hospital is not required to allow entry into the delivery room to an intended parent if: (1) medical personnel determine that the gestational surrogate's life or health could be jeopardized if an intended parent is present; (2) the gestational surrogacy contract prohibits an intended parent from being present; or (3) medical personnel determine there is other good cause to prohibit an intended parent from being present, including, but not limited to, if the intended parent is causing a disturbance or other security concerns.
