Political  Action  Committee

The NHRTL PAC serves the pro-life community by proactively helping selected
candidates get into office.  We work in the political arena in a way more partisan
than the regular, non-profit, NHRTL Committee is allowed.   Therefore, the PAC
can leverage our insiders view of the political landscape to help candidates and
work on imperatives to help defend respect for human life.   Since we are a state
PAC, and not a federal PAC, we are limited to state races.

Require Parental Notification Before Minors May Obtain an Abortion
Click for Original Bill Text

This parental notification bill is to insure parents or guardians are notified when
an unemancipated minors under age 18 seeks an abortion.  It is merely notification,
NOT consent!   There is a judicial by-pass clause.   A public hearing was before
the NH Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, May 13, but they voted 3 to 2
for an amendment which rendered the bill meaningless.   One of the 3,
Sen. Frank Sapareto (R-Derry) apparently flip-flopped because he is among
the 12 (of 24) Senators who signed NHRTL-PAC surveys in support of
parental notification.   NHRTL consequently issued a Press Release on the matter.

The full Senate is expected to vote on this bill soon, probably MAY 22, so contact
them ASAP and implore them to:

  • REJECT any and all AMENDMENTS to this bill

  • PASS the ORIGINAL TEXT of HB-763 in support of Parental Notification

A big thank-you to Gov. Craig Benson for his 2001 NHRTL-PAC survey return
supporting Parental Notification, and his testimony of support before the Senate
Judiciary Committee on May 13!
