State Representative Apologizes for comment

A state lawmaker from Nenana has issued an apology for saying women should get signed permission from the father before they get an abortion.

 

Nenana Republican Alan Dick made the comment a week ago.
 
His comments drew hundreds of responses on Facebook, and women called his office to complain about his statements.
 
Rep. Dick presented the idea during a Health and Social Services Committee meeting on state funding for abortions for low-income women.
