SANTA FE, N.M. — A New Mexico Senate panel has tabled a second abortion-related bill, this one requiring parents be notified at least 48 hours before a minor ends a pregnancy.

The Public Affairs Committee's 5-3 vote Sunday blocks the bill from moving forward.

The action came after a similar party-line vote — with Democrats voting in the majority — earlier on a bill that proposed banning late-term abortions.

The New Mexico House of Representatives had approved both bills that generated hours of intense testimony and debate, sending them on to the Senate.

Supporters say the late-term abortion ban is designed to bring New Mexico in line with 42 other states that prohibit some abortions after a certain point in pregnancy.

Abortion-rights advocates say women need safe access to abortions, not government interference.
