CONCORD, NH — Ahead of Ron DeSantis’ visit to New Hampshire tonight, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Senator Maggie Hassan, Congresswoman Annie Kuster, and Congressman Chris Pappas slammed the extreme abortion ban he signed late last night:
“In the dark of night, Governor Ron DeSantis signed one of the strictest abortion bans in the country to rip away the rights of women to make their own health care decisions. This kind of assault on personal freedom has no place in New Hampshire. Granite State voters believe in less government interference in people’s personal lives.
“Governor DeSantis and the rest of the Republican Party have made clear that, if they gain power, they will force through an extreme agenda that strips medical decisions away from women and their doctors, endangering the safety of millions of women in New Hampshire and across the country. Democrats in the Granite State remain laser focused on protecting a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions — including abortion — against the extremism that Republicans like DeSantis are peddling.”
