Kuster Votes Against Misguided Abortion Ban Legislation
(Washington, DC) – This evening, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02), who served as an adoption attorney for 25 years, voted against legislation that would have limited women’s access to safe and legal abortion.
“As an adoption attorney for 25 years, I understand that the decision to end a pregnancy is deeply personal and difficult and should be made in consultation with one’s family and doctor, not the government,” said Congresswoman Kuster. “The fact of the matter is that abortions occurring after 20 weeks are exceedingly rare and this legislation would endanger women who are seeking such services for serious medical reasons. This bill is nothing more than an attempt to rollback women’s access to comprehensive reproductive services.”
