As for protecting women’s health, she continues to resist efforts to improve abortion-facility inspection and licensing regulations, and she has done nothing to encourage public health officials to track New Hampshire women’s post-abortion morbidity and mortality. She has yet to explain how losing a contract for “family planning” forces a private entity like PP to deny “cancer screenings” (not to be confused with mammograms, which PP doesn’t do in NH) while leaving its own public policy budget untouched. There are five more weeks until the election, though. The governor has plenty of time to address this. So does her opponent, Walt Havenstein.
