Recently, GraniteOne Health (of which CMC is the largest member) proposed merging with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC), which not only performs abortions but also trains doctors in how to do them. New Hampshire Right to Life believes this is a step in the wrong direction, as the merged entity, including budgets, would primarily be controlled by DHMC, which fundamentally differs on basics like who qualifies as a person and whether the Hippocratic oath (which prohibits abortion and euthanasia) should be followed. In addition, with less competition it is likely that healthcare costs in NH would go up, making more poor families choose between healthcare and other basic needs.
We are calling upon CMC to return to its stated core value, especially as it relates to unborn persons: “Treat others with compassion and to promote social justice and equality.”
DHMC and GraniteOne will be conducting public listening sessions next week. A strong turnout will send the message that Granite Staters do not approve of this.
