Sometimes in life you have to get a little lost before you are truly able to find your way.

Update on PPNNE

As of Friday, July 1, just over a week since the New Hampshire Executive Council, led by Councilman St. Hilaire, decided to reject funding for Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, the effects are already being felt in a big way. At PPNNE’s six health centers in New Hampshire, 92 patients didn’t have access to affordable birth control. By next week it will be hundreds. By next month, it will be thousands.

Your help is needed now. Here’s what you can do:

Make a tax-deductible donation to PPNNE’s Justice fund. The Justice Fund helps provide the resources PPNNE needs to meet the legal, advocacy, and public information challenges that arise in their efforts to protect access to women’s health care services. Often, when legal and public policy threats emerge, they are unavoidable, unbudgeted, and tap precious, limited resources. Your special gift to the Justice Fund will help as PPNNE staff members work around the clock to ensure this contract is renewed.

If you live in NH Districts 2, 4, or 5, contact your councilor and urge them to reconsider this extreme decision. If you live in NH Districts 1 or 3 thank your councilor for caring about women!

NH residents: Add your name to our petition and signature collection.

Thanks for standing up for women, health and justice.
