The law bans abortion at 24 weeks and parental notification remains in effect.

*Update as of 5/27/22: Exceptions for fatal fetal diagnoses and the life of the pregnant person were added to the 24-week abortion ban.

*Update as of 5/23/22: NH had required ultrasounds for every abortion visit, regardless of if they were medically necessary. Today that mandate was lifted and ultrasounds are no longer required by state law. 

Abortion remains safe and legal in New Hampshire, but there are a few restrictions:

  • Abortion is banned at 24 weeks with exceptions for fatal fetal diagnoses and the life of the pregnant person. While this section of the law does not impact the care we provide at PPNNE health centers, we believe all people should have the right to access the sexual and reproductive health care they need - including abortion – without government interference.
  • Parental Notification is in effect. If you are under the age of 18 and seeking an abortion, NH requires that one of your parents be told of your decision 48 hours before your abortion. A judge can excuse you from this requirement. Learn more.
