Why Are Pro-Abortion Republicans Still on the House Judiciary Committee?

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.  

The GOP-Led House Judiciary Committee Just Voted to Return to Abortion Up to Birth

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.

What is the Civil Liberties Defense Act / HB 440?

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.

Sununu Wavering on 24-Week Abortion Ban

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.

Passage of the Budget Brings Long-Overdue Protections for the Preborn
