The American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire works to secure a world that respects everyone’s right to form intimate relationships and to decide whether and when to have children. With reproductive freedom comes opportunity: opportunity to build a secure, productive, and meaningful life. Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, we strive to ensure that the government respects and supports reproductive freedom.
The ability to decide whether or not to carry a pregnancy to term is essential to pregnant person’s equality, autonomy, and dignity, with implications for every aspect of their life – their educational aspirations, career goals, economic status, and, more broadly, their ability to live the life they planned. Despite the formal existence of the right to a safe and legal abortion, abortion access for many pregnant people is regulated so that it’s almost, or entirely, out of reach. And the struggle is getting worse. ACLU-NH is working to ensure that people in the Granite State have timely access to abortion care.
