Lynch vetoes parental notification change to N.H. abortion law

Concord, New Hampshire - June 16, 2011

New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch has vetoed changes to the state's abortion law.

A bill approved by lawmakers would have reinstated a law requiring that underage girls tell their parents or a judge at least 48 hours before getting an abortion. Exceptions existed if a doctor determined a girl's life was at risk.

Lawmakers could still override the veto since both the House and Senate are under Republican control.
