CONCORD, N.H. — Women would have to wait 24 hours to receive an abortion and be given information in the meantime on fetal development in a bill before the New Hampshire House.

The so-called informed consent bill is one of three abortion-related bills that could be voted on Thursday. A second bill would ban late-term abortions, which are already banned in federal law. A third bill would change the requirement that a judge issue a ruling within 48 hours to within two court business days when a minor seeks permission to have an abortion without notifying her parents.

New Hampshire lawmakers have considered informed consent and late-term abortion bans over the years and rejected them, but this year the House Judiciary Committee is recommending passing the restrictions.
