Full text of testimony on SB 741-FN submitted to the Senate Health and Human Services Committee by Shannon McGinley, Executive Director, Cornerstone Action. Please vote Ought to Pass on SB 741-FN, a thoughtfully-drafted bill calling for enforceable protections for an infant surviving attempted abortion. This legislation is about a situation arising after abortion, after a pregnancy has been terminated, after a woman has exercised a reproductive medical decision. Roe v. Wade addresses abortion rather …

Woman testifies against CACR 14

Constitutional Amendment on Abortion Meets Strong Opposition

(Photo Credit: Beth Scaer) UPDATE 2/5/20 : The House Judiciary Committee voted on CACR 14 in executive session on February 5. By a margin of 18-2, the committee voted “inexpedient to legislate,” and we are overjoyed.

Cornerstone Urges Legislators to Reject Assisted Suicide, HB 513 (2011)

Cornerstone Action is a non-partisan, non-profit public policy organization of 6,000 New Hampshire residents. We oppose HB 513 just as we opposed a similar bill in 2009. This is poor public policy, whether it’s called “death with dignity” (in 2009’s HB 304), “aid in dying” (HB 513), or what we believe is the more apt “assisted suicide.” There is no dignity or aid when …
