The New Hampshire Republicans running for US Senate doubled down on their extreme, unpopular, anti-choice positions yesterday following the leaked draft Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. The Republicans made it clear that they support the decision to overturn Roe which would criminalize abortion and punish Granite Staters seeking reproductive health care. Read more below:
Kevin Smith told his supporters that “we are SO close to ending abortion once and for all” and said that he supports the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe.
Chuck Morse said that he supports the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe and was proud of his anti-choice record which includes being the “key architect” of the first abortion ban in modern New Hampshire history, that makes no exceptions for rape, incest, or fatal fetal anomaly and mandates ultrasounds and imposes felony penalties and prison time on doctors.
Don Bolduc similarly said that he supports the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe.
While Republicans running for US Senate used the Supreme Court decision as an opportunity to remind Granite Staters that they would all be reliable yes votes to help Mitch McConnell push his anti-choice agenda in Washington, Senator Hassan made it clear that she will continue to fight to protect women’s reproductive freedoms.
