NH GOP STATEMENT ON PARENTAL NOTIFICATION

CONCORD – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Fergus Cullen releases the following statement on Gov. Lynch’s signing of the parental notification bill:

“I am disappointed that Governor Lynch signed the parental notification repeal. One can be pro-choice and still believe that parents have a right to know that their teenage daughter became pregnant. Under Governor Lynch’s policy, a child can have an abortion without her parents ever knowing she had been pregnant. A moderate position would have been to amend the law to address the court’s concerns. An extreme position was to repeal it altogether. This action shows that Governor Lynch shares the left-wing’s agenda on social policy.”
