You probably know by now that Republican Executive Councilor Chris Sununu did what we said he would do. He gave your money to Planned Parenthood, including retroactively, when we all know they don’t actually need it.

Thumbnail image for Planned Parenthood Doesn’t Need Your Money

Yesterday I observed that there was a high probability that Republican Executive Councilor Chris Sununu was going to vote to fund Planned Parenthood retroactively with your taxpayer dollars. As a Republican and the deciding vote, this has attracted some attention but not necessarily for the reason that it should. Regardless of how you may feel […]

Taxpayer Funding for Planned Parenthood Rears Its Ugly Head – AGAIN!

by Jane Cormier January 29, 2016

Due to the votes of courageous Executive Councilors Wheeler, Kenney, and Sununu, taxpayer funding is no longer flowing to Planned Parenthood health centers here in NH.

Executive Councilor Chris Sununu has voted to fund Planned Parenthood in the past so it is not unreasonable to think he’d do so in the future.  That is until recent revelations about strategic organ farming by its abortion doctors became common knowledge.

It’s time New Hampshire taxpayers stop funding Planned Parenthood

by Kimberly Morin July 17, 2015

In an editorial yesterday, the Union Leader called Planned Parenthood’s practice of selling dead baby body parts a “Harvest of Horror.” This is only scratching the surface of the horror show known as Planned Parenthood. The organization was conceived by well-known racist Margaret Sanger along with eugenicists to “cull the less desirables.” With Planned Parenthood’s […]

By giving tax funding to Planned Parenthood here in NH, I guess Jeanne Shaheen is going….

by Skip July 14, 2015

…”Yeah, baby!”  And I guess this “baby organ harvesting” is one good reason why Democrats and and Abortion-mongers have been fighting the stricture against late term abortions and refusal to support post-20 week abortion limitations – can’t harvest baby organs if the baby hasn’t matured enough. I guess that Progressive mantra has been missing a few […]

If a big pharmaceutical company was given $40,000.00 by the New Hampshire’s Executive Council to advertise the benefits of a drug therapy that had not only not yet been approved but was not even known to be viable, would people be up in arms about that?  I think they probably would.  So how about some […]
