NHDP - Ovide Lamontagne's Alleged "Freedom and Liberty" Doesn't Extend to Women's Health Care, Marriage Equality

CONCORD - Ovide Lamontagne's alleged support for "freedom and liberty" doesn't extend to women or gays and lesbians, Raymond Buckley, chairman of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, pointed out in response to Lamontagne's first ad "Heart."

 

"A television ad won't erase Ovide Lamontagne's cold-hearted attitude toward stomping on the freedom and liberty of women and gays and lesbians," Buckley said. "Ovide Lamontagne has promised to aggressively work to repeal marriage equality. And Ovide Lamontagne is a strong believer in 'government intrusion' in women's health care. In fact, he supports a constitutional amendment that would make all abortion, even in the cases of rape and incest, a crime, and even outlaw some forms of birth control and fertility treatments."

 

Ovide Lamontagne told a rally this winter that as Governor he would aggressively work to repeal marriage equality.

 

As a candidate for U.S. Senate, Lamontagne supported a "Human Life Amendment" that would make all abortions a crime, and even make some forms of birth control and fertility treatments unconstitutional.
