SB 315 would require persons who are sixteen and seventeen years of age to receive pregnancy information and counseling.

Current law in Connecticut requires a physician or counselor to provide minors with pregnancy information and counseling prior to the performance of an abortion procedure. Under the law, a minor is described as a person less than 16 years of age.

This bill would amend the definition of minor to apply to persons less than 18 years of age.
