CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Representative Sandra Keans issued the following statements on the passage of HCR 41, which would urge the U.S. Congress to find a grant to Planned Parenthood of Northern New England unconstitutional and void.
“Over the last 14 months, State House Republicans have spent an excessive amount of time focusing on defunding health care for 16,000 New Hampshire Women. For over 30 years, Planned Parenthood Health Centers across our state have provided basic health care services such as annual exams and cancer screenings.”
“Earlier this year, the Republican majority in the House passed reckless Legislation that will place many women in jeopardy of losing their health care. House Republicans should be focusing all of their attention to what Granite Staters care about – jobs and the economy.”
“I urge the House Republicans to end their laser like focus on attacking health care for women and spend time on the reason the people of New Hampshire sent us to the State House”
