Statement from Maggie Hassan on House Vote on Birth Control
"It’s disappointing that the House passed this bill that takes away a woman’s right to make her own personal health care decisions. Speaker O'Brien's Tea Party legislature has ignored the needs of New Hampshire women who simply ask for access to basic health care. Ovide Lamontagne would be nothing more than a rubber stamp for Speaker O'Brien's extremist agenda instead of focusing on jobs."
"This unbelievable assault on women has to stop. As Governor, I will stand strong to protect the progress that women have made over the last century and against attempts like this bill to undermine our health care rights and our independence."
