It’s no surprise Havenstein has stayed quiet. Whenever he's been pushed to show his true colors on critical issues, he's proved to Granite State women why he can't be trusted to protect their right to affordable health care.
In recent weeks, Walt celebrated the Supreme Court’s far-right Hobby Lobby decision that allows bosses to come between a woman and her doctor, and voiced his opposition to buffer zone measures that protect women and workers accessing reproductive health clinics.
Below are just a few of the key questions Walt Havenstein has refused to answer on women's health:
Would he support the Bill O’Brien agenda to defund New Hampshire Planned Parenthood clinics?
He's already said he opposes New Hampshire's bipartisan plan to expand critical health coverage to tens of thousands of working women, including coverage for contraception. Would he also work to repeal our state's Medicaid expansion?
He supports allowing employers to compensate women less than men by refusing to cover a woman's full range of basic health care needs while covering those of her male co-workers. Would he also work to repeal the New Hampshire Paycheck Fairness Act that helps ensure women receive equal pay for an equal day's work?
Would he support restrictions on women’s health clinics that were considered in the state legislature last spring?
And what other health coverage does he think men deserve but women don't?
