For too long, abortion has been legal in New Hampshire, for any reason, up to the moment of birth. Thanks to our fourteen Republican State Senators, the Granite State is now closer than ever to having its very first protections for late-term preborn children.
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. Support is growing, but we are also facing determined opposition. HB 625-FN is a carefully crafted and worded bill representing the combined efforts of legislators and legal scholars, including two proposed amendments to strengthen it – the Birdsell and French amendments – which Cornerstone supports.

HB 430, The Sidewalk Free Speech Act, will repeal the current prohibition on gathering in a public area that is near a reproductive health care facility. Cornerstone strongly supports this bill.

HB 434, prohibiting the use of public funds for abortion, is one of several life bills being introduced this session that are intended to put some accountability and framework into the wide-open abortion industry in the state. (The most critical of these bills is HB 625, a prohibition on advanced late-term abortions.) HB 434 will have its first hearing in the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, February 10th, at 9 am.
HB 625, Relative to the protection of fetal life, would prohibit a healthcare provider in NH from aborting a preborn child with a gestational age of at least 24 weeks.
