Will New Hampshire finally start collecting abortion statistics? A recommendation one way or the other should emerge soon from a legislative committee – perhaps I should say another legislative committee, since this is not the first time a stats bill has been under consideration. Rep. Kathleen Souza (R-Manchester) and ten co-sponsors are patiently promoting this year’s version.

A House Health, Human Services and Elderly Affairs subcommittee will have its final public work session on HB 629 on Wednesday, October 21, at 11 a.m. in room 205 of the Legislative Office Building in Concord. The bill will be voted on by the full committee on Thursday afternoon, November 5. (Watch Leaven for the Loaf’s Facebook page for updates on time and location.) Whatever the committee recommends is what the full House will vote on, probably in January 2016.
