GREENLAND – During a discussion with reproductive healthcare providers and activists on Monday, Congressman Chris Pappas said more is at stake today than just three weeks ago, with the recent vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.
Seated outside at the Joan G. Lovering Center – a women’s health clinic – former speaker of the New Hampshire House of Representatives Terie Norelli said Roe v. Wade is hanging on by a thread.
Over the weekend, President Donald Trump announced he is nominating Amy Coney Barrett, a conservative federal appeals court judge, to fill the late Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s seat on the Supreme Court. Trump has said it is “certainly possible” his Supreme Court pick will be involved in revisiting the landmark 1973 decision that legalized abortion in the United States.
“People are scared, people are frightened,” said Lisa Leach, executive director at the Lovering Center.
