Tell N.H. reps: Protect reproductive health care


New Hampshire Gov. Christopher T. Sununu vetoed H.B. 685, a bill requiring insurance plans that cover maternity benefits to provide coverage for emergency and elective abortion services. Called the Reproductive Health Parity Act, the bill would protect against barriers to abortion care access.

Despite the fact that it passed both the Senate and House, Sununu vetoed H.B. 685, claiming that it would “take away the freedom of choice for those employees and employers who object to being forced to partake in or provide abortion services.”

The religious beliefs of individuals should not interfere with someone else’s health care access and coverage.
