New Hampshire Repeals Abortion Parental Notice Law

This is a good example of what happens when state legislature and senates go “blue.” Apparently New Hampshire is the first state to repeal a parental notice law (which never went into effect due to legal challenges). The article pointed out Washington state removed a parental consent law in 1991.

Because so much reproductive rights news always seems like its “all bad, all the time” its nice to hear that for once a state legislature actually went to broaden reproductive rights instead of restrict them.

Hat tip to feministing…I missed this story in the Washington Post on Friday. (And I typically read the dead tree version too!)
