More on that New Hampshire Executive Council

| | Comments (3) | TrackBacks (0)

Our affiliate, NARAL Pro-Choice New Hampshire, gave us an update to yesterday's post on the Executive Council, whose vote to reject a contract with Planned Parenthood forced the state's six clinics to stop providing birth control.

In particular, one council member's comments about women who use contraception struck a nerve with many of our readers here at Blog for Choice:

If they want to have a good time, why not let them pay for it?

I know it's called the Granite State, but that doesn't mean that its politicians need to be stuck in the Stone Age. 

The Executive Council will meet again tomorrow, and could reconsider its vote to defund Planned Parenthood. If you live in New Hampshire, take action through our affiliate.

And not a moment too soon: Nick Toumpas, New Hampshire's commissioner of health and human services, said that cuts to family-planning funding put the state at risk of losing federal dollars.

So tomorrow will be a test of how far these politicians want to take their attacks on women's health care.
