CONCORD — The New Hampshire Supreme Court says a guidance counselor who helped a 15-year-old girl get judicial approval for an abortion without telling her parents shouldn't have lost her job.
Under state law, girls under 18 must notify their parents before getting abortions or get a judge's OK. The guidance counselor in question told the girl about the second option and got a restraining order to stop the principal from telling the girl's mother about the pregnancy.
The court ruled Thursday that the school district was wrong to respond by not renewing the counselor's contract.
In a dissent, Justice Robert Lynn accused his colleagues of ignoring legal principles because the case involved a hot-button issue. He says they jumped on the "bandwagon of political correctness."
