RESTORING THE CULTURE OF LIFE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
Two victories for life occurred this week in the New Hampshire legislature.
1. The House and Senate voted by over 70% to over ride the veto of Governor John Lynch on Parental Notification. Thus beginning the process of respecting life and parental rights. In 2007, Governor Lynch signed the repeal of the 2004 Parental Notification law following a United States Supreme Court battle. Thank you to the Senators and Representatives who took this bold step.

2, The Executive Council in New Hampshire acts as a check on the Governor. These 5 elected officials vote on all state expenditures over $5,000. This past week in a 3-2 vote the Executive Councilors St. Hilaire, Wheeler and Wieczorek rejected the Planned Parenthood contract worth $1.8 million. However, other family planning contracts were approved with Councilors Wheeler and Wieczorek voting against the contracts.
