New Hampshire is one of the most abortion-friendly …

House Votes to Kill Buffer Zone Repeal

The New Hampshire House voted on January 31 to kill an attempt to repeal the so-called buffer zone law. Cornerstone supported the bill, HB 124. The vote was 228-141 on an “inexpedient to legislate” motion. The roll call is here. Note that because the motion was “inexpedient to legislate,” a Yea vote was a bad vote. The buffer zone law is a blight on our …

Health Care Freedom of Conscience (HB 1787, 2018)

Viable Fetus Protection Act (HB 1680, 2018)

Cornerstone supports HB 1680, the Viable Fetus Protection Act. The bill is a good-faith attempt to reconcile the interests and concerns of women, their preborn children, and the health care professionals with whom a woman may choose to consult. It is consistent with Roe v. Wade, which granted states a right to assert an interest in the treatment of viable human fetuses while also asserting an interest …

Yes to Meaningful Informed Consent for Abortion (HB 1707-FN, 2018)

Cornerstone urges passage of HB 1707-FN, the Abortion Information Act. We are concerned about public policy regarding a woman’s right to have full information, and adequate time to consider it, before making a decision to have an abortion. HB 1707 is drafted to be consistent with the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1992 Casey decision which reaffirmed the basic holding of Roe v. Wade while also upholding …

New Hampshire’s “buffer zone” law is on hold, keeping peaceful pro-life witness outside abortion facilities legal for now. Senate Bill 319, signed in June by Governor Maggie Hassan, would have allowed abortion facility managers to impose anti-speech zones of up to 25 feet outside the facilities.  Seven New Hampshire residents have filed suit against the law, in the case of Reddy v. Foster. U.S. District …
