Letter: Sununu supports abortion ban, really?

Published: 6/8/2021 8:00:12 AM

As a liberal, I’ve been relieved that Governor Sununu has governed as a fiscal conservative, but has shown to be somewhat moderate on social issues. In fact, he said he did not see any reason to pass legislation on abortion at the state level when he ran for office. Now he says he will support the budget that does not allow for abortion exceptions for rape or incest after 24 weeks.

Governor Sununu, please have a sense of decency and ensure that at the very least, exceptions are put in place for women who have been victims of sexual violence. His recent approval of this legislation is disturbing and disappointing. I rarely agree with Governor Sununu, but I didn’t think he was cruel enough to support a bill like this.
