Last year's U.S. Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization decimated the right to abortion access in our country, and in April 2023, a federal judge in Texas issued an unprecedented and baseless ruling blocking the approval of mifepristone, a safe, effective abortion and miscarriage medication, which could further upend abortion access nationwide.
What was unfathomable a year ago–taking away our ability to control our own bodies and futures and allowing states to criminalize people seeking and providing health care–is a fight at our front door.
But here’s what you need to know: in New Hampshire, abortion (including medication abortion) is still safe and legal up to 24 weeks. If you need an abortion, you can get one. If you have an appointment, keep it.
And know that we collectively have the power to fight back.
Here's how you can take action right now.

|Tell your state senator to support two critical bills this legislative session that would put abortion rights into state law and repeal the criminal penalties doctors face under NH's current 24-week abortion ban. Update: The NH Senate voted against these two bills on April 13, 2023. Stay tuned for a way to contact your lawmakers and make your voice heard!|
