Can’t Trust Kelly: On the Two Year Anniversary of Dobbs, a Reminder that Ayotte Worked to Overturn Roe v. Wade

Today marks the two-year anniversary of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, a decision that stripped women across the country of the reproductive rights they’d had protected for nearly five decades. 

The negative consequences of the Dobbs decision continue to reverberate nationally and here in New Hampshire, and former U.S. Senator and Republican candidate for governor Kelly Ayotte’s fingerprints are all over this disgraceful decision, which nearly 2-in-3 Granite Staters opposed:

  • Ayotte explicitly called for the overturning of Roe v. Wade. 

  • After Granite Staters voted her out of office, Ayotte didn’t give up on her mission to help overturn Roe v. Wade, serving as the “sherpa” for then-Supreme Court Justice nominee Neil Gorsuch’s Senate confirmation. As a Supreme Court Justice, Gorsuch took just 10 minutes to sign off on the 98-page Dobbs draft opinion.

Today serves as a difficult reminder for women across New Hampshire: Republicans are dead-set on restricting Granite Staters’ reproductive rights and inserting government into the most personal healthcare decision a woman can make — and Kelly Ayotte has her fingerprints on the biggest assault on women’s freedoms in our nation’s modern history,” said NHDP Spokesperson Jack Richter. “There’s a reason that Republicans are trying to erase their extreme track record of ripping away reproductive freedom — they know they are out of step with Granite Staters. But there’s no running away from their dangerous agenda, which voters know and are ready to reject in November.”
