The Act amends a 1987 law enjoined and found unconstitutional by a federal district court. The 1988 Act amends the 1987 law by deleting the provisions requiring an adult to accompany a minor seeking an abortion to the abortion facility, by providing alternative methods of verification of parental notification, and by changing certain provisions including those relating to confidentiality, jurisdiction, and the standard for granting judicial waiver.
