CONCORD – On March 8, International Women’s Day, Planned Parenthood in New Hampshire celebrated U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen for being a lifelong champion for women’s rights and reproductive rights.

Senator Shaheen on Thursday co-introduced the Reproductive Rights are Human Rights Act, which would block the State Department from censoring reproductive rights issues and help ensure that abuses on reproductive rights around the world do not go unchecked. Last April, the State Department released its annual 2017 human rights report, which erased mentions of human rights abuses related to reproductive health.

In February, Senator Shaheen also reintroduced the Global HER Act to permanently repeal the unethical and dangerous Global Gag Rule, which restricts health care access for the most vulnerable women in the world by preventing foreign organizations receiving U.S. global health assistance from providing information, referrals, or services for legal abortion or advocating for access to abortion services in their country – even with their own money.

Additionally, as highlighted in a recent Politico article, Senator Shaheen plays a critical role as the only woman on the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, “filling a void in Trump’s foreign policy” and focusing on legislation that “directly affects women and families around the world”.

As the first woman to ever serve as both governor and U.S. senator, Senator Shaheen is a trailblazer for women in the Granite State, nationally, and globally. She recently announced that she will run for a third term in the U.S. Senate.

Statement from Sabrina Dunlap, Vice President of Public Policy, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, NH and Planned Parenthood New Hampshire Action Fund:
“Planned Parenthood in New Hampshire is incredibly grateful for Senator Shaheen and all the incredible work she has done for women’s rights and reproductive rights in New Hampshire, our country, and around the globe. We especially want to thank her for introducing the Global HER Act – it’s absolutely critical that the Global Gag Rule is repealed so that some of the world’s most vulnerable women can receive the basic care they need. We look forward to continuing working with Senator Shaheen as she advances the health and safety of women in New Hampshire and across the globe.”
