At Cornerstone, our heart is to educate and speak out on critical issues impacting the lives of families in the Granite State. Here’s the latest Cornerstone commentary. We hope you’ll take a few minutes and read what we have to say.
On Wednesday of last week, Governor Sununu reiterated his willingness to strip the modest ultrasound requirement from the Fetal Life Protection Act—New Hampshire’s only prohibition on late-term abortion.
Today is the traditional feast day of Aurelius “Ambrose” Ambrosius, an ancient church father and bishop of Milan who is recognized as a saint by Catholics, Eastern Orthodox Christians, Anglicans, and some Lutheran denominations. As Ambrose is also one of my personal heroes, I thought I would take a few minutes to give an overview of his life.
The Executive Council isn’t just a group of advisors. Its members wield real power in the state and serve as a check on the Governor. Whether we’re talking about significant state contracts, pardons, or judicial nominations, it’s the Executive Council who has the final say. If that surprises you, you are far from alone. In fact, the power of New Hampshire’s Executive Council is unmatched by any other similar state body in the country.

If supporters of New Hampshire’s pro-life movement do not put their foot down now, we will have sacrificed precious children and failed each other. Republican leadership must decide whether the NHGOP platform contains even a modicum of truth on the issue of life—or whether they will allow a Republican-led committee to facilitate the deaths of children in the last three months of pregnancy.
On September 28, at an executive session of the House Judiciary Committee, two Republican members of the Committee—Rep. Ned Gordon (Alexandria, Ashland, Bridgewater, Bristol, Grafton) and Rep. Joe Alexander (Goffstown)—advanced an underhanded plan to destroy the Fetal Life Protection Act, New Hampshire’s only protection for late-term preborn children. Taking
During the COVID-19 state of emergency, Governor Sununu wielded some of the broadest emergency powers of any governor in the country… For example, Sununu could have used his emergency powers to suspend free speech, suspend the right to bear arms, or even suspend free elections. As long as the Governor’s actions were related to the declared emergency, any legal challenges to these actions could have been dismissed out-of-hand.
The next legislative season is fast approaching, and already a large number of LSRs (Legislative Service Requests) have been submitted for review by lawmakers. These requests are the first required step to become next year’s bills. Among the very first LSRs are several which are attempting to destroy the
While this week saw a precious victory for life with the Executive Council’s vote to deny approval for funding for abortion clinics in New Hampshire, the attacks against the preborn are only intensifying.

Sadly, Governor Sununu has repeatedly indicated his willingness to gut and nullify the recently passed Fetal Life Protection Act by doing away with the ultrasound requirement. Most recently, when asked about it in an interview with New Hampshire Public Radio he stated that, “I absolutely plan to revisit the law,” suggesting that the law’s ultrasound
On June 25, Governor Sununu signed into law the state budget, HB 2 – which included the Fetal Life Protection Act. This historic legislation makes New Hampshire the first state in the country to go from allowing abortion up to birth to prohibiting late-term abortion.
Pro-abortion leaders and the media continue to repeat false claims about the ultrasound requirement in the Fetal Life Protection Act. They portray it as imposing massive new costs. In fact, the law includes no punishment for failure to perform an ultrasound unless there is a “substantial risk” that the
