Far right has an

anti-freedom agenda

To the editor:

This election may be the most important election in decades. Why? Because the extreme right has an agenda that will do away with freedom and choice as we know it.

For women, they plan to force government mandates into their lives and take away personal choice. “Live free or die” will no longer apply to half the New Hampshire population.

Those currently controlling the New Hampshire House of Representatives oppose abortion in all cases, including rape, incest, or even when the life of the mother is in danger.

They want to make abortion a crime and put women and doctors in jail. They want to limit women’s access to birth control, and even outlaw certain forms of birth control and fertility treatment.

They have one of the most restrictive, repressive agendas New Hampshire has seen in years. That is why it is important to make a change in Concord.

That is why it is necessary to get to the polls and vote, to preserve women’s individual freedom to make their own health-care choices.

Betsy Burtis, Bobby Jones, and Mary Till, your Democratic candidates for state representative, will preserve a woman’s right to make her own choices about health care and family planning. That will keep the government out of personal decisions.

Please consider what’s at stake in this election, and vote to preserve our New Hampshire way of life. Vote for Burtis, Jones, and Till (“Mary for Derry”).
