New Hampshire Right to Life – Council to Consider Giving More Tax Dollars for Abortion Providers


NHRTL responds to false narrative that “birth outcomes will suffer” by posting list of medical resources unaffected by law prohibiting most funding of Reproductive Health Care Facilities.

CONCORD, New Hampshire, December 18, 2021 – 3 abortion providers, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE), Equality Health Center and Lovering Health Center, were once again submitted for funding by NH HHS, to be voted on at the Dec 22 Executive Council meeting.

Four out of five Councilors on September the 15th rejected these same abortion providers from receiving taxpayer subsidies [1], in according with the law. With HB2 signed by Governor Chris Sununu in late June, healthcare organizations providing family planning services must prove money they receive does not fund abortions procedures; abortion providers are prohibited from receiving any funding at all.

Soon after the Executive Council members decided to uphold the law in mid-September, the NH abortion providers announced increased prices for family planning services on their poorest clientele [2]. The abortionists thought they could bully NH taxpayers into subsidizing their abortions by increasing prices for other services.

However, other healthcare centers exist to provide pregnant women and their children with medical care. During the family planning vote, the Executive Council funded Amoskeag Health in Manchester, Coos County Family Health, Concord Hospital’s Family Health Center and Lamprey Health Care in Nashua. In November, they restored funding to the Community Action Program for Belknap and Merrimack Counties, another family planning resource clinic. This is in addition to Medicaid, Subsidized health insurance plans and Pregnancy Centers,

Jason Hennessey, President of New Hampshire Right to Life (NHRTL) shared on WMUR that many pro-life advocates do not want their tax dollars going to subsidize organizations kill unborn children. He explained that over 60 federally qualified health centers provide low income families, especially women, with reproductive and general health care; none of those facilities provide abortions [3].

As a public service, NHRTL responded to the price increases at abortion facilities for their low income clients by publishing an interactive map with a list of health care centers and other helpful organizations for women and their families [4].

Details regarding the proposed contracts are available on the Executive Council website [0], and are scheduled to be voted on at the the next Governor & Executive Council meeting Wednesday, December the 22nd at 10:00 am. The meeting will take place at the State House on 107 North Main Street in Concord.

NHRTL urges concerned citizens to contact their Executive Councilor to urge them to vote against funding these abortion providers, as it is both a) against the HB2 law, which begins with “No state funds shall be awarded by the department of health and human services to a reproductive health care facility”, and b) it is unethical to force the many NH citizens who believe in the sanctity of life to subsidize abortion business..
