Hawaiian House Repeals Abortion Residency Rule – Sends Bill to Senate

Hawaiian House Bill 1242 repeals the state’s residency requirement for women seeking abortions and allows the procedure to be performed in clinics and physicians' offices outside of a hospital. It has passed the state House of Representatives and has been sent to the state Senate for consideration.  It is viewed by some as promoting abortion and others as bringing Hawaiian law up-to-date.  Some opponents argue it will make Hawaii “a haven for women seeking abortions and lead to unsafe procedures performed without proper medical supervision.”  Source:  B.J.
