CONCORD, NH – Today, both chambers of the New Hampshire legislature voted to override the Governor’s veto of HB329, the parental notification bill.
Commenting on the victory for parental rights was Cornerstone Director, Kevin Smith:
“Today is a major victory for parental rights in New Hampshire. Parents have an inherent right two know if their minor daughter may be seeking a major medical procedure such as an abortion. Thankfully, a super-majority in the Legislature today voted to enact this common-sense law by overriding the Governor’s ideologically-driven veto.”
