STATEMENT: NHDP Chair on State Senate Republicans Blocking Crucial Abortion Protections
CONCORD, NH — During session today, the New Hampshire Republicans blocked SB 181, the Access to Abortion-care Act, which would have codified abortion protection into state law.
In response, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:
“New Hampshire Republicans gave us an unfettered look into their future plans. Now we know for sure: more abortion restrictions are coming. Their actions today set the stage for more deeply unpopular abortion restrictions to be implemented in the near future, and we know a total ban is their ultimate goal.
“Senate Republicans lost the popular vote this year because of their deeply unpopular position on abortion. It’s time they govern like it.”
