House committee vote: No abortion waiting period

The New Hampshire House Judiciary Committee today voted to recommend killing a bill that would have required a 24-hour waiting period before a woman could receive an abortion.

House Bill 483, sponsored by Reps. Jane Cormier (R-Alton) and Lenette Peterson (R-Merrimack), is similar to a bill passed by last year’s Republican-led House before being killed by the Senate.
