CONCORD, NH — New Hampshire House Republicans filed legislation to ban abortion at 15 days with no exceptions for rape or incest. NHDP Chairman Ray Buckley released the following statement in response:
“The MAGA majority is going to new extremes in their radical agenda to take away reproductive freedoms, filing a draconian ban on abortion at just 15 days — before most women even know they are pregnant. If passed, this legislation — which makes no exceptions for rape or incest — would be one of the cruelest, most restrictive bans in the country, and thousands of Granite Staters will suffer.
“Make no mistake: Donald Trump’s appointment of the Supreme Court justices who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade is the reason MAGA extremists are more empowered to push bans like this in New Hampshire and across the country. This dangerous ban has no place in New Hampshire, and Republicans running for president, governor, and every office down the ballot need to tell Granite Staters exactly where they stand on this legislation.”
