Senate Republicans Criminalize Women’s Health Care Providers

CONCORD – Today, Senate Republicans ensured that women’s health care providers providing abortion services will face criminal charges, up to and including felonies.


After the vote, Senator Tom Sherman (D-Rye) issued the following statement:


“Today, my Republican colleagues have not only ensured that abortion providers in New Hampshire will be criminalized if they provide abortions after 24 weeks, they have made New Hampshire less safe place for pregnant women. Republicans have turned doctors into criminals for providing abortions, even when it is in the best interest of the health of the mother or even the fetus. This will have a chilling effect not only on women’s health in New Hampshire, but also on the already fragile system of health care for women in New Hampshire.”
