Bills to Stand Against: HB1609, SB399, & SB436

By January 17, 2022No Comments

In this week’s action alert, legislators will hear testimonies on three anti-life bills on Tuesday and Wednesday:

HB1609: It will add a rape and incest exception to the Fetal Life Protection Act. Also, it will remove the ultrasound requirement from the act, making it unenforceable.

SB399: It completely repeals the Fetal Life Protection Act, making abortion legal up until birth again.

SB436: Passing this bill would prevent any more abortion restrictions before viability (24 weeks gestation) to be passed.

Overall, New Hampshire Right to Life does not support these three bills, and we encourage you to stand up against them.

In-Person

If you are available to testify in person, it is the best way to show your opposition.

On Tuesday the 18th, House HHSEA members will hear testimonies for HB1609 at 9:50 am. It will occur at the Legislative Office Building 210-211 (33 N State St, Concord, NH 03301).

On Wednesday the 19th, Senate Judiciary members will hear testimonies for SB399 at 1:00 pm and SB436 at 2:00 pm. Both sessions will take place in the State House in Room 100 (107 N Main St, Concord, NH 03303).
