Following the reporting on a draft U.S. Supreme Court opinion in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, New Hampshire Democrats are calling on Republican congressional candidates to make clear to New Hampshire voters if they stand with the most extreme, far-right elements of the Republican Party who wish to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Granite State voters deserve a clear answer from Republican congressional candidates in CD-01 and CD-02. Do they support ending a women’s right to bodily autonomy by repealing the 50-year precedent of Roe v. Wade, as the Supreme Court seems set to do? In CD-01, candidates have not been shy about their opposition to women’s rights.
While working in the Trump administration, Matt Mowers helped reinstate and expand the Global Gag Rule, a dangerous policy preventing abortion access and has repeatedly expressed anti-choice views.
Karoline Leavitt has repeatedly expressed anti-choice opinions and has stated that she does not believe abortion is about women’s health or reproductive rights.
Tim Baxter has already come out and celebrated this reported decision, and in his capacity as State Representative, he voted to pass New Hampshire's abortion ban, and later against repealing criminal penalties for doctors who perform abortions and for providing exceptions for fatal fetal anomalies.
In CD-02, candidates have also stated their opposition to a woman’s right to choose.
On the issue of choice, Bob Burns believes that Roe v. Wade should be overturned.
Lily Tang Williams says "In my personal moral beliefs, I am pro-life."
Granite State voters deserve the truth. Do Republican congressional candidates in CD-01 and CD-02 stand with Granite Staters who overwhelmingly support the right to choose? Do they believe abortion should be legal at any point in a pregnancy, especially in cases of rape, incest, and fatal fetal anomaly?
