Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement on Governor Hassan's unwillingness to consider alternatives to Planned Parenthood:
"Planned Parenthood has been accused of engaging in criminal activity and the United States Congress and as well as thirteen governors have launched investigations into this scandal-plagued organization. Given the serious and legitimate accusations that have been made against Planned Parenthood, there is no good reason to give them taxpayer dollars while these investigations are ongoing.
"Planned Parenthood has donated thousands of dollars to Governor Hassan's political campaigns, so it is not surprising that she has refused to launch an investigation in New Hampshire or seek alternative providers that offer the same services. It's time for Governor Hassan to stop playing politics and put the interests of New Hampshire women ahead of the demands of a major political donor immersed in scandal."
