Planned Parenthood has stopped providing contraception and antibiotics in New Hampshire after the state's executive council rejected up to $1.8 million in funding for the organization. Other services, like cancer-preventing pelvic exams and STD screenings, are also in danger of elimination.
This move is yet another reactionary measure against the privately-funded abortions that Planned Parenthood provides to 3% of its patients. Despite the fact that the New Hampshire government continually audits Planned Parenthood NH to ensure that it uses no public funding for abortions, the executive council determined to again place their principles over the health of low-income women.
New Hampshire is the eighth state to attempt to defund Planned Parenthood's potentially life-saving services, but the New Hampshire state government may consider a revote this month. Tell them that it is morally reprehensible to compromise women's health.
The New Hampshire executive council's recent decision to reject $1.8 million in funding for Planned Parenthood is both immoral and irresponsible. By choosing to halt Planned Parenthood's contraceptive and preventative services, you are risking the health of low-income women.

100% of Planned Parenthood's abortions are privately funded. Choosing to cripple the organization based purely on principle is a classist and sexist maneuver. I strongly urge you to reconsider your decision to deprive Planned Parenthood of vital funding.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
