Understanding the Case for HB 542 and Why NH Needs It

HB 542, Rep. Keith Ammon’s Religious Liberty Act, is under assault. It is difficult for followers of the bill to determine the truth in the fog created by numerous distortions and outright falsehoods. Here is the simple truth.

Protect the Late-Term Preborn: Don’t Let Amendments Sabotage HB 625

We are very close to a Senate vote on HB 625, a bill that would put protections in place to preserve the life of preborn children who are at least 24 weeks gestational age.

But the fact is that this scenario is unambiguously ruled out by the Birdsell Amendment.

Republican-Led NH House Judiciary Committee Votes to Keep Abortion Legal Up to Birth

At yesterday’s executive session of the NH House Judiciary Committee, the Republican-majority committee voted to completely reject a slate of moderate pro-life legislation. These setbacks come despite New Hampshire voters having elected Republican majorities in both the House and Senate.  The Committee voted 11-10 against HB 625, which would prohibit abortion at or after 24 weeks of gestation, with exceptions for the life and …

HB 434 Will Safeguard New Hampshire’s Right to Keep Tax Dollars Out of the Abortion Industry
