CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire's House has passed a trio of bills limiting abortions.
One would require pregnant women to wait 24 hours and certify they had been given information on fetal development before getting an abortion.
The House voted 189-151 Wednesday to send the bill to the Senate. The bill also requires that the women receive explicit information about the fetus and an opportunity to view a video on the issue.
The House voted 224-110 to ban partial-birth abortions, which are already prohibited under federal law.
The third bill passed would change a requirement when a minor seeks permission to have an abortion without notifying her parents. Instead of ruling in 48 hours, the judge would have two court business days.Tags:
