NH Senate committee recommends buffer zone repeal

[Update: the Senate vote is scheduled for May 5.]

A New Hampshire Senate committee on a 3-2 vote today recommended passage of HB 1570, a bill to repeal New Hampshire’s yet-unenforced buffer zone law targeting peaceful pro-life witness outside abortion facilities. The news was reported on the Facebook page for a Planned Parenthood agency and was confirmed to me by a representative of Cornerstone.

The full Senate must now vote on the measure. The next Senate sessions are scheduled for Thursdays, May 5 and 12.

I’ll post more information as it becomes available.
