SANTA FE — The New Mexico House of Representatives approved a ban on late-term abortions and a bill requiring that parents be notified at least 48 hours before a minor ends a pregnancy.
The 42-26 vote on the first bill came after nearly four hours of debate, and the second 39-28 ballot another three hours later.
Both bills now head to the Senate.
Lawmakers shared personal stories, sometimes emotionally.
