Title: NH Executive Council Upholds Ethical Standards: Rejects Abortion Subsidies

(Concord, NH Nov 29, 2023) New Hampshire Right to Life (NHRTL) applauds the decision of the NH Executive Council to reject Title X contracts that would have subsidized abortions. Today’s decision ensures that taxpayer dollars and the conscience of pro-life citizens are protected.

Despite the efforts of the abortion lobby, 4 of the 5 councilors stood firm, honoring the intent of the law passed in 2021 [0].

These funds in the past appear to have subsidized out of state abortion providers. After NH denied funding in 2021, soon after in 2022, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England closed 6 centers, with 5 in Vermont and only 1 in NH.

As a public service, NHRTL makes available a list of affordable & free health care centers, including the over 70 federally-qualified healthcare sites, for the health of women, men and their children on its website at These are in addition to expanded Medicaid & subsidized health plans, which means that most low-income individuals can now access full-service health care outside of the Title X program.

Jason Hennessey, President of NHRTL, praised the decision, saying:

The Executive Councilors who said no to funding abortion providers said yes to saving lives and money. Giving tax money to organizations that also lobby to legalize abortion all the way through birth is just too extreme.

0: 2021’s HB2, Section 91:36 states “No state funds shall be awarded by the department of health and human services to a reproductive health care facility”, with a Medicaid exception.
