Senate approves parental rights bill

CONCORD &#-; Terminating the parental rights of a rapist would be easier for the victim under a bill the Senate approved unanimously Thursday.Rape victims who decide to keep their child conceived as the result of rape often have to make a deal with the perpetrator not to testify against him to end his claim for parental rights.New Hampshire is one of 15 states that require a sexual assault conviction to terminate the parental rights of the rapist. Senate Bill 253 would change that.The bill, which has bipartisan support across the political spectrum, would terminate the man&#';s parental rights if he is convicted or pleads guilty to sexual assault, or after a court finds the child was conceived during a rape.The bill now goes to the House.
