Governor Sununu Lied
Last night Governor Sununu vetoed HB 1625repealing the prohibition on entering or remaining on a public way or sidewalk adjacent to a reproductive health care facility. If signed, HB 1625 would have repealed New Hampshire’s unconstitutional “buffer zone” law, which allows abortion clinics to ban people from engaging in speech or even silent prayer on sidewalks outside of abortion clinics.
In 2016, just before he was first elected Governor, Sununu pledged in a letter to repeal the buffer zone law. This was one of five key promises he made to pro-life Granite Staters to win their support. Now he has broken his promise to his pro-life constituents and demonstrated that this was simply a lie to win votes.

The Governor allowed pressure from the pro-choice lobby to sway his decision, betraying the trust of pro-life citizens and refusing to strike down a law which is a blatant violation of our constitutional rights.

Please reach out to the Governor’s office to express your disappointment with his lack of integrity in breaking his promise to the pro-life citizens of New Hampshire and in his disregard for his sworn responsibility to uphold our constitutionally protected rights. The Governor can be reached at 603-271-2121 or 603-271-7676.
HB 1431, the Parents’ Bill of Rights Dies in the House

Last Thursday, the NH House voted down HB 1431, establishing the Parental Bill of Rights, by five votes. Sadly, a number of Republicans were among those who voted to kill this bill, which would have required that schools inform parents of important decisions regarding their minor child.  Had it passed it would have  ensured that school districts and parents work together for the welfare of the child, instead of parents alienated from their children by those within the schools pushing their own radical agenda and deliberately kept in the dark about important information concerning their child’s wellbeing.

While the bill did fail, Cornerstone is grateful to Speaker of the House Sherman Packard and House Majority Leader Jason Osborne for their tireless work on the bill. Please take a moment to contact Rep. Packard and Rep. Osborne and thank them for their stand on behalf of the rights of New Hampshire families.
