CONCORD, N.H. – A New Hampshire court has ordered the state to release numerous documents related to the state’s funding of abortion facilities and its continuing failure to regulate them. State officials first denied the request of an Alliance Defending Freedom allied attorney to have access to the records.
The “right to know” request was filed on behalf of New Hampshire Right to Life, which filed an appeal Monday with the New Hampshire Supreme Court to gain access to the documents that the lower court did not order to be released.
“The people of New Hampshire deserve to know how their government is spending their hard-earned tax money and if that money is being funneled to groups that are misusing it,” said Michael Tierney, one of more than 2,500 private attorneys allied with ADF. “The documents that the court has ordered the state to produce are critical to the further scrutiny of the state’s apparent complicity with abortionists to minimize regulatory oversight and ignore FDA safety protocols. However, the trial court did not order the disclosure of all the necessary documents, and the state blacked out some information on the released documents, so we are asking the New Hampshire Supreme Court to weigh in.”
