Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood for Northern New England: CRR Amicus Brief

New Hampshire - 2005

Summary of Argument

The New Hampshire statute at issue in this case imposes notification requirements and a forty-eight hour waiting period on pregnant minors who choose abortion. It provides no exception from those requirements when a medical emergency threatens a young woman's health, even though the delays typically involved in meeting those requirements can exacerbate health threats.
