Planned Parenthood of New England:
On Wednesday, November 8th, the New Hampshire Executive Council will vote on a contract with Planned Parenthood of Northern New England that will help ensure that access to birth control, cancer screenings, STI tests and treatment is protected for nearly 11,000 Granite Staters.I tests, over 10,000 well-women exams and cancer screenings, and almost 1,500 breast exams annually. Planned Parenthood also provides a number of other services including pregnancy tests, access to contraception, and specialized care such as transgender care. No public funding is used to provide abortion.
FYI In 2015 the NH Executive Council voted to reject this contract.
Planned Parenthood’s doors remained open, but health centers experienced direct impacts on patient care, including longer wait times. Funding for basic, preventive health care is on the line. Stand up for the thousands of New Hampshire patients who are counting on this contract so they can continue to receive the care they rely on. Take action today. Once you have taken action, sign the petition and rally with us on November 8th.
Thanks for your help with this,
Mary Ann and Christine
