NJ State Senate to Vote on Parental Notification Bill

A Republican-sponsored state parental notification bill that would require any woman under 18 to notify one parent before she received an abortion has made its way to the New Jersey Senate. This bill, if passed, would invalidate a decision by the NJ state Supreme Court, which ruled the parental notification law to be unconstitutional. Both houses of the NJ Legislature would have to approve the bill before it could be placed on the November 2001 ballot.
