CONCORD, NH — Tonight, Granite State voters resoundingly re-elected Sen. Jeanne Shaheen following a robust Planned Parenthood Votes electoral program that prioritized this critical race.

After an early endorsement by Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Sen. Shaheen resoundingly won re-election with a campaign that put expanding access to sexual and reproductive health care at the forefront. Senator Shaheen has led efforts to end the Trump administration’s domestic and global gag rules and opposed attempts to overturn Roe v. Wade and legislation that seeks to restrict access to abortion care and reproductive health care. 

Statement from Kayla Montgomery, Planned Parenthood Votes NH Spokesperson:
“We are thrilled that longtime reproductive rights champion and trailblazer Jeanne Shaheen won decisively and will be returning to the Senate to continue representing the people of New Hampshire. Senator Shaheen has fought tirelessly to expand and protect access to reproductive and sexual health care for Granite Staters and for women, men, and young people around the globe. Tonight, Granite Staters made it clear: we will not roll back the clock on reproductive rights, and supporting access to privacy when it comes to personal health care decisions is a winning issue. With Senator Shaheen fighting for us, we know New Hampshire will always have a champion in Washington.”

Granite State voters turned out in record levels across the state Planned Parenthood Votes spent the months leading up to the election urging voters to elect Granite State candidates who will prioritize their health, safety, and rights. Planned Parenthood Votes’ electoral program included digital ads, direct mail, and virtual direct voter contact to more than 200,000 voters.

Tonight’s victory sends a clear and resounding message that attacks on sexual and reproductive health care and rights will not be tolerated. In New Hampshire, 64 percent of people believe that abortion should be legal in all or most cases, and nationwide support for abortion access is at an all-time high. 

Americans were clear about where they stood even before this election: nearly nine in 10 women in this country will use birth control in their lifetimes, 77% of Americans don’t want to see Roe v. Wade overturned, 70% of Americans favor ending the global gag rule, and a majority of young people — across political parties — support federal funding for abortions even though it is currently prohibited by the Hyde Amendment.
