Update on CACR 14: The New Hampshire House Judiciary Committee will vote on the constitutional amendment in executive session on Wednesday, February 5, beginning at 10 a.m. in room 208 of the Legislative Office Building in Concord.
The executive session is open to the public, but it is not a public hearing and no testimony will be taken. CACR 14 is one of several bills on which the committee will vote at its 10 a.m. session. The committee’s recommendation on CACR 14 will go to the full House for a vote at a later date.
CACR 14 would amend the New Hampshire Constitution to say “[t]he right to make personal reproductive medical decisions is inviolate and fundamental to the human condition.” The right to life would not enjoy the same distinction. CACR 14 would lock abortion into the state constitution.
Through close of business on February 4, there is time to contact the House Judiciary Committee (HouseJudiciaryCommittee@leg.state.nh.us) to ask briefly, clearly, and courteously for a recommendation of Inexpedient to Legislate on CACR 14.
