Delegate Lawrence A. LaMotte, D-Carroll, Baltimore, sheathed his legislative sword Thursday at a hearing on 12 abortion bills and attempted to appeal to his colleagues on another level -- that of a parent.LaMotte, a primary sponsor of two abortion-rights bills, argued against the inclusion of any clause requiring minors to notify parents before having an abortion, a focus of debate on the issue.In an emotional plea, he described his recent meeting with the parents of a young Indiana woman who died as a result of a "botched back-alley abortion" and questioned whether his own teen-age daughter would be too ashamed to approach her parents if caught in the same predicament.
