Governor Sununu Praises New Healthcare Bill That ‘Defunds’ Planned Parenthood

Amid Federal Uncertainties, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England Marks National Women’s Health Week by Emphasizing Importance of Wellness Visits and Preventive Care

“May 15-21 is National Women’s Health Week, Our Doors Remain Open”

Concord, NH — During National Women’s Health Week (May 15-21), Planned Parenthood of Northern New England is highlighting the need for regular wellness visits and preventive health care as a critical part of staying healthy for women of all ages. Regular checkups and screenings are essential to good health; and early detection and treatment of illnesses could save your life. A survey released last year, however found that the vast majority of women do not know when or how frequently they should be screened for breast and cervical cancer, and many — especially women of color — aren’t getting screened often enough.

However, Women’s Health Week comes two weeks after the U.S. House of Representatives passed the worst bill for women’s health in a generation. This legislation “defunds” Planned Parenthood, which will block Medicaid patients in New Hampshire from accessing birth control, cancer screenings, and STI testing at Planned Parenthood. This disastrous legislation will make it harder for women in New Hampshire to prevent unintended pregnancy, harder to have a healthy pregnancy, and harder to raise a family.

Yesterday, during an interview on NHPR’s The Exchange, Governor Sununu proposed that states should be able to opt out of covering women’s health care, substance abuse treatment and mental health treatment. Referring to the opt out as “flexibilities” for the states, Sununu rationalized his stance on substance abuse treatment and women’s health by saying flexibility is needed because those issues may not be as important in other states as they are in New Hampshire.

“As the nation’s leading provider and advocate of women’s health care, Planned Parenthood encourages all women to make their health a top priority by scheduling a checkup and getting regular screenings,” said Molly Cowan, Planned Parenthood of Norther New England’s Communications Manager. “Annual well-woman visits help providers learn more about your health and family history to help you stay healthy, and are an opportunity to make sure that you’re getting the screenings you need, as well as using the birth control method that best fits your needs.”

“In New Hampshire, Planned Parenthood is calling on our leaders: Governor Sununu, and budget writers in the House and the Senate to fund reproductive health programs and ensure New Hampshire’s quality public health outcomes, such as low teen pregnancy rates and strong maternal health outcomes, remain enviable.These results are no accident, and we urge our leaders stand with women, and put their votes where results clearly are. Planned Parenthood is an expert and cost-effective source of preventive care for women, and our doors remain open to answer any questions that women and young people may have about their health,” Cowan added.

Sununu’s support for allowing New Hampshire and other states to opt out of women’s health coverage would undermine coverage for those with preexisting conditions, maternity care, and reproductive rights. This continues Sununu’s tenuous relationship with women’s health, as he voted to defund Planned Parenthood as an Executive Councilor in 2015 before being pressured to vote for it in the midst of his run for Governor.

“It’s outrageous that Governor Sununu would support allowing New Hampshire and other states to deny coverage for women’s health care, substance abuse treatment and mental health treatment,” said NH Democratic Party Chair, Raymond Buckley. “His excuse is pathetic, saying that different states have different needs, but no one should be denied coverage because of their gender. Just because a lower volume of people suffer from substance use disorder in other states doesn’t mean those who are suffering don’t deserve care. And just because Governor Sununu is a man doesn’t mean he doesn’t have to worry about women gaining the coverage they need. New Hampshire needs a governor who stands up against Trumpcare, not one who supports outlandish proposals that would undermine a promise to provide affordable health insurance to those with preexisting conditions.”

For those who may be uncomfortable or unfamiliar with a well-woman visit, Planned Parenthood’s online resources walk through the process and provide a clear sense of what to expect.

One in five women has turned to Planned Parenthood at some point in her life for affordable, high-quality health care and compassionate, confidential information and advice. Additionally, the Affordable Care Act strengthened women’s preventive health  coverage; the ACA requires 100 percent coverage of cancer screening costs, with no copay for insured women.

Last year, Planned Parenthood saw 11,000 patients in New Hampshire alone.

Planned Parenthood health centers provide high-quality, confidential, affordable health care and our doors are open to everyone. Visit plannedparenthood.org to find a health center and make an appointment.

National COSH Backs Legislation to Prevent Employers From Hiding Workplace Injuries

 Identifying Workplace Hazards Crucial to Improving Safety Conditions; Employers Who Keep Accurate Records Deserve a Level Playing Field 

SAN DIEGO, CA – The National Council for Occupational Safety and Health (National COSH) said today that new legislation to prevent employers from hiding workplace injuries is crucial to protecting the health and safety of America’s workers.

“You can’t fix a problem if you don’t know it exists,” said Jessica Martinez, co-executive director of National COSH. “It’s critical to support legislation that will hold employers accountable when they try to hide crucial information about workplace hazards.”

The Accurate Workplace Injury and Illness Records Restoration Act was introduced today by Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Patty Murray (D-WA) and Representatives Joe Courtney (D-CT), Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA) and Rep. Mark Takano (D-CA). The bill will reinstate the longstanding authority of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to sanction employers in hazardous industries who repeatedly fail to accurately report injuries and illnesses.

“Tens of thousands of Americans die every year from preventable illnesses and injuries in the workplace, and millions more are hurt on the job,” said Marcy Goldstein Gelb, also a co-executive director of National COSH. “If we let employers get away with failing to report safety problems, we’re putting workers at risk. It’s also unfair to responsible companies who keep accurate records; they deserve a level playing field.” 

The legislation introduced today responds to recent action under the Congressional Review Act, which severely limits OSHA’s ability to enforce existing laws that require employers to keep accurate records about employees who are injured or become ill in the workplace.


National COSH links the efforts of local worker health and safety coalitions in communities across the United States, advocating for elimination of preventable hazards in the workplace.

Thousands Join Women’s Group in Demanding NH Legislature Expel Rape Apologist Rep Robert Fisher

UltraViolet Says Fisher’s Promotion of Violence and Misogyny Online Puts Women at Risk, Undermines the Credibility of NH’s Government

NEW HAMPSHIRE — A new petition from UltraViolet, a leading women’s advocacy organization, is demanding that the New Hampshire State Legislature immediately move to expel state representative Robert Fisher, after a report last month from The Daily Beast discovered that the two-term Republican was the creator of an online community dedicated to promoting violence against women.

Fisher’s actions on the online forum included comments deriding women’s intelligence, and recommending ways for men to dodge rape accusations, as well as statements arguing that rape had specific benefits – especially for the rapist. Since the comments were discovered, Fisher has doubled down and publicly defended the idea that most women lie about rape and that men should put cameras in their bedrooms to protect themselves.

More than 36,000 members of UltraViolet have signed onto the petition calling on the New Hampshire State Legislature to discipline Fisher and expel him from office. With state lawmakers and New Hampshire’s Governor calling for Fisher to resign, the New Hampshire State Legislature is set to vote on Fisher’s expulsion on June 1st.

VIEW THE PETITION HERE: https://act.weareultraviolet.org/sign/pro-rape_nh_legislator/

“Rape apologists have no place in our government,” explained Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of UltraViolet. “Extreme anti-woman comments like Fisher’s directly contribute to our national rape culture epidemic – one where our society normalizes and excuses violence against women. Fisher’s promotion of this repulsive ideology puts women’s lives at risks and undermines trust in the New Hampshire state legislature to protect all citizens. The New Hampshire State legislature must immediately move to expel Fisher from their ranks – and demonstrate to all New Hampshire residents that this kind of dangerous anti-women ideology has no place in our society.”


UltraViolet is an online community of over 1,000,000 women and men who want to take collective action to expose and fight sexism in the public sector, private sector and the media. Find out more at WeAreUltraViolet.org.

Shaheen Reintroduces Legislation To Protect Pregnant Workers From Workplace Discrimination

Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, which is closely modeled after the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), would address legal ambiguities and help ensure that pregnant women are treated fairly on the job

(Washington, DC) – U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Bob Casey (D-PA) and Dean Heller (R-NV) reintroduced bipartisan legislation that would protect pregnant workers from workplace discrimination. The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act would address legal ambiguities and help ensure that pregnant women are treated fairly on the job. The legislation, which is closely modeled after the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), would require employers to make reasonable accommodations—such as a minor job modification—that would allow pregnant workers to continue working and prevent them from being forced out on leave or out of their jobs. The bill also prohibits employers from denying employment opportunities to women based on their need for reasonable accommodations related to pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions. A companion bill was introduced in the House of Representatives by Congressmen Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Mike Coffman (R-CO).

“No expectant mother should have to choose between giving up her job or jeopardizing the health of her pregnancy,” said Senator Shaheen. “Congress must work together to safeguard the important role of women in our workforce and prevent employer discrimination. This bipartisan legislation will ensure that pregnant workers are afforded reasonable on-the-job accommodations and protected from unfair retaliation.”

“Women make up almost half the workforce, but all too often they’re forced to make an impossible choice: risk their own health and pregnancy to keep a job, or lose their income at the moment they can least afford it,” said Emily Martin, NWLC General Counsel and Vice President for Workplace Justice. “Pregnant workers are ready, willing and able to work but they are often pushed out by employers who refuse to make even minor temporary changes to their jobs to accommodate pregnant workers’ medical needs. We applaud today’s bipartisan action and urge Congress to pass the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act – because no woman should have to choose between her job and her pregnancy.”

Sixty-two percent of pregnant women and new moms are in the labor force, yet under current law, pregnant workers can be placed on unpaid leave or forced out of their jobs because of a pregnancy.

Shaheen and Casey first introduced this legislation in the 112th Congress. The legislation is supported by: A Better Balance, American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), American Association of University Women (AAUW), American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, California Women’s Law Center, Equal Rights Advocates, Hadassah, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, Legal Aid Society – Employment Law Center, Legal Momentum, Main Street Alliance, March of Dimes, National Organization for Women, National Partnership for Women & Families, National Women’s Law Center, Physicians for Reproductive Health, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce.

Flight Attendants’s Union Stands Up For Passengers And Workers Against Wall Street’s Greed

Flight Attendants’ Union Launches Multimedia Campaign with Message that Wall Street’s Shortsighted Approach Will Hurt Airlines and Passengers in the Long-Term

American Airlines Airplane (Tomás Del Coro FLIKR)

EULESS, TEXAS (May 12, 2017) — The Association of Professional Flight Attendants announced today a multimedia campaign in Texas newspapers, aviation trade journals and social media to counter statements from Wall Street analysts critical of additional compensation for flight attendants at American Airlines.

“It seems Wall Street is putting pressure on the airline industry to squeeze out more revenue, but they could care less about passengers or frontline workers, ” said Bob Ross, National President of the Association of Professional Flight Attendants. “Analysts are claiming that a long overdue adjustment in our pay scale will reward workers ahead of shareholders. We’re going to set the record straight.” Ross tells workers’ side of the story in a commentary in an issue of Aviation Daily earlier this week. The union also is running advertisements in newspapers and on social media.

Following the recent announcement of pay raises for workers at American, CitiGroup research analyst Kevin Crissey was widely quoted as saying: “This is frustrating. Labor is being paid first again. Shareholders get leftovers.”

The real story, said Ross, is that shareholders received $9 billion in stock buybacks between 2014 and 2016 – plus $600 million in dividends over the past three years. That’s nearly 10 times what pilots and flight attendants will receive over the next three years.

In addition, between 2003 and 2012, flight attendants at American and the former U.S. Airways contributed more than $6 billion in concessions to help the airlines keep their planes in the air. Recent pay adjustments for flight attendants at American (which merged with US Airways in 2013) will bring workers at American into parity with their counterparts at Delta and United. Even with the wage adjustment, APFA members will still be earning less, after inflation, than they did prior to 2003.

As Ross explains in his commentary in Aviation Daily:

It wasn’t flight attendants… who made decisions to shrink space available for passenger seating, routinely overbook planes, and add fees for checked baggage and other services. But we are the ones who have to deal with passengers who are angry and frustrated over challenging travel conditions.

…Underpaying key frontline employees leads to high turnover and low morale, which is not a recipe for quality service. Treating workers fairly is a better long-term strategy.”

 


The Association of Professional Flight Attendants is the largest independent flight attendant union in the nation, representing nearly 26,000 flight attendants at American Airlines.

 

Trump’s Sham Committee On Voter Fraud Brings In The Secretary’s of State From NH And KS

The NH Young Democrats and The Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law speak out against Trump’s new executive order to investigate unfounded claims of voter fraud.

Following the shocking news that President Trump signed an executive order establishing the “Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity” and that Secretary of State William Gardner will participate on the commission, House Election Law Committee member Representative Isaac Epstein released the following statement on behalf of the NHYD:

“Every voter in New Hampshire should be alarmed that President Trump has cooked up this sham commission. This is a clumsy distraction to justify the President’s ridiculous lies about fake voter fraud here in our own state. Serious leaders on both sides of the aisle, including Secretary of State Gardner, have all dismissed these absurd allegations.

We appreciate Secretary Gardner’s many years of service to the State of New Hampshire, but we have real concerns about his participation in this commission. Specifically, we are concerned by his outspoken support for Senate Bill 3 which was introduced to address the very perceptions of voter fraud that President Trump and Governor Sununu have fabricated.

If Secretary Gardner participates on this commission, we implore him to stand up for every Granite State voter and to reject the Trump administration’s lies about massive voter fraud. Further, we beg him to only support conclusions that are based in fact and reality. As a public servant, Secretary Gardner’s top priority should be to protect the most fundamental right of every American – the right to vote.”

Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, released the following statement Thursday in response to alarming reports that President Trump will launch a commission to review his unfounded claims of voter suppression.

According to reports, the commission will be co-led by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a partisan advocate for voter suppression laws:

“In no uncertain terms we condemn the launch of this so-called Presidential Commission on Election Integrity.  President Trump is trying to create a distraction from actual threats to our democracy, such as ongoing voter suppression and Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

“When Attorney General Jeff Sessions led a similar effort as a former prosecutor in Alabama, it had a chilling effect on the black vote.  Now, President Trump is seeking the counsel of Kansas Secretary of State Kobach, who has a proven record of advocating for discriminatory and burdensome policies that prevent members of minority communities from exercising their right to vote.”

Report after report has shown that there is no voter fraud in New Hampshire and that Trump’s accusations of voter fraud are completely unfounded.  What is real is the partisan attack on voting rights and access to the ballot as Republicans say they are “tightening up the laws.”  These new restrictions will block assess to the ballot and suppress the vote.

NH Senate Passes Marijuana Decriminalization Potentially Saving Law Enforcement Agencies $6.5 Million

Image by Global Panorama FLIKR CC

Yesterday, the Senate passed HB 640, legislation to decriminalize marijuana in the state of New Hampshire, with a bipartisan vote of 9 Democrats and 8 Republicans. The bill reduces the penalty for possession of up to ¾ of an ounce of marijuana from a criminal penalty to a violation. Legislators and advocates anticipate that this language will address inequalities in the criminal justice system and allow law enforcement to focus resources on combatting the state’s heroin, opioid and fentanyl epidemic.

Senate Democratic Leader Jeff Woodburn (D-Whitefield) offered the following comments after passage:

“The decriminalization of marijuana happened today because Democrats pushed marijuana decriminalization through the legislature – it is a proud progressive achievement that moves New Hampshire forward by creating a serious, sensible pathway to marijuana legalization.”

“Given the severity of our state’s opioid, heroin and fentanyl public health crisis, it’s prudent to relieve law enforcement from the burden of processing small marijuana possessions as criminal cases and free up resources to address our most urgent substance misuse cases. I’m very pleased with the outcome of today’s vote; I only wish more of our Republican colleagues could have joined us.”

Under HB 640, as amended by the Senate, an adult 18 years or older in possession of three quarters of an ounce or less of marijuana would be guilty of a violation for their first three offenses and not subject to arrest. Their fourth offense committed within a three year period would constitute a class B misdemeanor. The bill now goes back to the New Hampshire House of Representatives.

“It is past time for New Hampshire to join the rest of New England in adopting more sensible marijuana possession laws,” stated Devon Chaffee, the Executive Director of the American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire. “We applaud the New Hampshire Senate and urge the House to concur with the Senate version of the bill and send it to the Governor’s desk without delay.”

Governor Chris Sununu has indicated his support for the marijuana decriminalization effort.

“I want to thank the legislature for passing common sense marijuana reform. I look forward to signing House Bill 640 into law,” stated Governor Sununu.

According to an ACLU 2013 study, New Hampshire spent over $6.5 million in a single year enforcing marijuana possession laws. In New Hampshire blacks are 2.6 times more likely to be arrested for a marijuana possession offense than whites.

Every other state in New England has had laws decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana for many years. Moreover, last November voters in Maine and Massachusetts passed ballot measures to legalize and regulate the possession and sale of small amounts of marijuana for recreational use.  Just yesterday the Vermont Legislature sent a legalization bill to Governor Phil Scott’s desk.  A poll released on Tuesday by the University of New Hampshire shows that 68% of Granite Staters support New Hampshire following its neighbors and adopting marijuana legalization.

Progressives In The Senate Push To Expand Employee-Owned Companies

Senator Hassan Joins Senator Sanders, Lahey, and Gillibrand To Introduce Legislation To Encourage and Expand Employee-Owned Companies 

WASHINGTON – Today, building on her efforts to expand middle class opportunity and support innovative businesses in New Hampshire, Senator Maggie Hassan (D-NH) joined in introducing two pieces of legislation to help encourage and expand employee-owned companies.

Senator Hassan joined Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Patrick Leahy (D-VT), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) in introducing the WORK Act and the U.S. Employee Ownership Bank Act.

“Studies have shown that employee-owned companies have more productive workers, better working conditions, and greater shareholder returns,” said Senator Hassan. “New Hampshire has innovative businesses that are setting a great example of the benefits of employee-owned companies. I am proud to support these two bills that will help encourage these efforts, boost economic growth and expand opportunity for hard-working Granite Staters.”

Broad-based employee ownership has been proven to increase employment, increase productivity, sales, and wages in the United States. Employee ownership boosts company productivity by 4 percent, shareholder returns by 2 percent and profits by 14 percent, according to a Rutgers University study. Nationally, there are already nearly 10,000 employee-owned businesses which employ roughly 10 million people.

The WORK Act would provide more than $45 million in funding to states to establish and expand employee ownership centers, which provide training and technical support for programs promoting employee ownership. The bill is also co-sponsored by Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH).

The U.S. Employee Ownership Bank Act would create a U.S. Employee Ownership Bank to provide $500 million in low-interest rate loans and other financial assistance to help workers purchase businesses through an employee stock ownership plan or a worker-owned cooperative.
