HB 1721- Protection from Coercive Abortions

From our Women’s Desk:

Sponsors: Mark Pearson (Rockingham); Daniel Itse (Rockingham); Baldasaro(Rockingham) others, but these guys are in Rockingham

What the Bill Does: This bill establishes the protection from coercive abortion act to protect women from coercive abortions.

We are in favor of: KILLING THE BILL.

Why:   this is yet another pro-life strategy. It is closely entangled with the Wait Period. If passed, women who schedule an abortion will have to submit to an interview, which are typically faith based, and are vocally opposed to abortion, to ensure that she is not being coerced by anyone to have the abortion. Most state’s that have adopted this policy are also making it easier to sue doctors for failing to adequately screen for coercion.

Several studies from the University of Pittsburgh and one published in American Journal of Public Health report that coerced abortion is a very small piece of a puzzle that generally is associated with coerced sexual encounters, which IS a pervasive problem in our society. In essence, in fighting sexual abuse, you essentially eliminate coerced abortions.

This bill is coming from the Judiciary Committee.

Republican members are:  Gary Hopper, Kurt Wuelper

The following is a list of Republicans from Rockingham County. I think it is important for them to know that word spreads, we are all part of the Seacoast area, our Huddle group extends far beyond Mindi Messmer and Kate Murray, and we have many contacts all over the county. I have placed asterisks next to Republicans in Rockingham County that have voted with Democrats against some of these more insidious anti-abortion bills. I think they are important. Thank them and encourage them to hold the line.  Mix up those you contact, making sure we all don’t reach out to the top 10 people on the list.

FYI: House member Souza from Nashua is a rabid “right to life” crusader. She has sponsored 7 anti-abortion bills already in 2018.

Thanks for your help,
