Kevin Smith comments on HB 1679

MANCHESTER--Today, Kevin Smith, Republican candidate for governor of New Hampshire, made the following statement on the vote to override the veto of HB 1679. 

“The legislature’s vote to override the Governor’s veto of HB 1679, a bill prohibiting partial-birth abortions, was the right thing to do, and I’m pleased that this bill will now become law. Issues of life are important, and although legislation addressing abortion can be controversial, the prohibition of partial-birth abortion is something that most citizens can support.”
