State Legislation

New Hampshire ban on post-24 week abortions went into effect January 1

By Dave Andrusko

Good news out of New Hampshire. Last Saturday, legislation signed in June as part of the budget by Gov. Chris Sununu went into effect.

HB2 bans abortions after 24 weeks and requires that abortionists perform an ultrasound before an abortion. The woman would not be required to view the ultrasound image. In a statement, Gov. Sununu praised the budget package, saying, “Historic tax cuts, property tax relief, and Paid Family Medical Leave delivered all in one sweeping action is a win for every citizen and family in this state.”

Sen. Sharon Carson, R-Londonderry, noted how extreme New Hampshire is. “We are only one of seven states in this country that does not put any kind of a limit on abortions,” she said. “Forty-three states in this country have agreed that at some point you have to consider the life of the infant.”

New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley “insinuated voters would hate these pro-life restrictions on abortion, but surveys of Americans’ opinions on abortion have long found otherwise,” according to Nancy Flanders. “Polling has consistently found that Americans overwhelmingly believe abortion should be restricted to the first trimester and support common-sense restrictions, such as parental consent and informed consent laws. Only seven percent (7%) of Americans have been found to support completely unrestricted, taxpayer-funded abortion.”
