N.H. House passes 24-hour wait for abortion

One of three bills on way to Senate

CONCORD, N.H. - New Hampshire’s House passed a trio of bills Wednesday limiting abortions, including one that would make pregnant women wait 24 hours and certify they had been given information on fetal development before getting an abortion. The House voted 189-151 on the 24-hour wait bill, which also requires that the women receive explicit information about the fetus and an opportunity to view a video on the issue.

The House also voted 224-110 to ban partial-birth abortions, which are already prohibited under federal law.
