CONCORD, NH – The dangerous and chilling Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade continues to be felt across the country and here in northern New England. New attempts to restrict or ban abortion are happening nearly every day, making it extremely challenging to keep up with the current legality of abortion in any given state. Today, one in three women live in a state where abortion is banned.

Consistent with the trends across the country, New Hampshire voters are engaging in the reproductive rights movement in record numbers. Granite Staters are concerned about the future of legal abortion and motivated by extremist candidates who want to restrict reproductive freedom in New Hampshire. 

Statement from Kayla Montgomery, VP of Public Affairs for Planned Parenthood of Northern New England:

“As Granite Staters head to the polls for our state primary, voters know what is at stake. Since SCOTUS struck down Roe v. Wade, state politicians now decide the legality of abortion, including here in New Hampshire. One in three American women now live in states that have banned abortion - and that number is expected to rise. To keep abortion safe and legal here in New Hampshire, voters must elect politicians at every level of the ballot who unequivocally support abortion access and the full range of sexual and reproductive health services.”
