Right now, New Hampshire has an opportunity to elect a governor that will fight for our rights. Democratic candidate Molly Kelly has the strongest record when it comes to protecting women’s health care-which is critical in this political climate.
We are living in an era when women’s health care is attacked from all sides. In Congress and in our own state, funding for Planned Parenthood has become a political football and access to quality, affordable care is constantly in jeopardy. The Trump Administration is on the verge of changing the Title X family planning program that would essentially dismantle the program and cut Planned Parenthood out of participation. And the recent Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh has put the ruling of Roe v. Wade into question. Now, more than ever, it is vital for New Hampshire’s next governor to be a champion in fighting to protect women’s health and rights here in our own state.
Molly Kelly has a strong and proven record of voting to protect health care access for the women, men, and young people of New Hampshire during her time in the state senate. Her deep understanding of the issues and familiarity with the threats facing women’s health are what set her apart. In her ten years in the state senate, she opposed more than a dozen attempts to restrict reproductive rights and fought for policies - like Medicaid Expansion - that increase access to quality, affordable health care. We need a champion in the corner office. We need someone who will never waver on reproductive rights and access to safe, legal abortion care during these dangerous times. Molly Kelly is that champion.
I have no doubt that Molly Kelly will always stand with Planned Parenthood and access to safe, legal abortion for all New Hampshire women, regardless of income. As governor, she will fight for reproductive rights and that’s why Molly Kelly has the full support of the Planned Parenthood New Hampshire Action fund and voters like me in the Democratic Primary on September 11.
