Cecile Richards and Maggie Hassan to Hold Women for Maggie Press Conference in Concord

CONCORD – Cecile Richards, the President of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund*, will join Democratic candidate for Governor Maggie Hassan and Senate Democratic Leader Sylvia Larsen for a Women for Maggie press conference at the Legislative Office Building. Richards and Hassan will discuss the importance of standing up for equal pay for men and women and the need to protect a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions.

Maggie Hassan has a strong record of standing up for a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions, and strongly opposes the legislature’s recent attacks on women’s health care, such as measures to restrict the right to choose and to defund Planned Parenthood, making services like cancer screenings, fertility treatments, and access to birth control more expensive and less available.

Hassan’s “Innovate NH” jobs plan will help businesses grow and keep New Hampshire’s economy moving forward by focusing on education to build the best workforce in the country, providing tax credits to businesses, and giving businesses technical assistance to help them create jobs.
