NH House passes number of pro-life bills

According to LifeSiteNews.com, pro-life advocates in New Hampshire are celebrating a slew of recent legislative victories in the state’s House of Representatives, including an informed consent bill and a ban on late term abortions.
The “Women’s Right to Know Act,” perhaps the most hotly debated of the recent laws, was passed late last week after some of its more controversial provisions had been removed. In its current form, the bill requires that a woman seeking an abortion be provided with a description of the proposed abortion method and information about the medical risks of abortion including infection, hemorrhage, and cervical or uterine perforation. The clinic is also required to tell her about abortion alternatives, and a 24-hour waiting period requirement was also included.
The late term abortion ban is based on what the proposal calls “substantial evidence” that unborn babies are capable of experiencing pain by twenty weeks. The bill notes, however, that “even before 20 weeks after fertilization, unborn children have been observed to exhibit hormonal stress responses to painful stimuli.”
