NH House voting on bill requiring abortion waiting period

The Associated Press

CONCORD, N.H.  — New Hampshire's House will again be debating whether women should be required to wait 24 hours before getting an abortion.

 

The House Judiciary Committee is recommending that the House vote Wednesday to kill a bill that would require a woman's doctor to provide her with certain information about risks and alternatives to the procedure. The woman would be required to certify in writing that she has received the information.

The House passed a similar bill last year but the Senate rejected it.
