New Hampshire legislators are hearing bills that will decide reproductive rights across the state! The House Judiciary Committee will be considering several bills this week, both in support of and against reproductive rights. Act today to urge the committee to support the right to choose!
House Bills 562, 591 and 346 would strictly criminalize abortion. These bills include the fear-mongering frequently seen in religiously funded crisis pregnancy centers. Additionally, they would create stricter definitions on what is considered a “living” fetus. These specious arguments are fueled in religious anti-abortion rhetoric that exist solely to create restrictions based on religious extremist discomfort!
House Bills 224, 88 and 271, and the proposed constitutional amendment CACR 2, all support individuals’ bodily autonomy, including removing abortion bans and reducing penalties against physicians who provide abortions. These four bills would help to protect abortion care in New Hampshire for both in- and out-of-state patients, allowing for safe abortions and protections from legal challengers.
Please take a moment to urge the New Hampshire Judiciary Committee to support reproductive rights and reject unnecessary restrictions! We have included suggested language through the “Take Action” button, which you may customize as you see fit. For best results, please be succinct and polite.
