Last month, Planned Parenthood of New Hampshire stopped providing contraception to lower income women after the state’s executive council “rejected up to $1.8 million in funding for the group” because it also offers privately-funded abortions. As one council member, Raymond Wieczorek, put it, “I am opposed to abortion. I am opposed to providing condoms to someone. If you want to have a party, have a party, but don’t ask me to pay for it.” Last Wednesday, the Executive Council met again “and could have overturned its previous vote.” Unfortunately, it didn’t.
