Governor Hassan’s Statement on U.S. Supreme Court Buffer Zone Decision

CONCORD – Governor Maggie Hassan issued the following statement after the United States Supreme Court today ruled Massachusetts’ buffer zone as unconstitutional:

“Women should be able to safely access health care and family planning services, and the bipartisan legislation that I signed earlier this month was narrowly tailored, with input from the law enforcement community and municipal officials, to ensure the safety and privacy of patients and the public, while also protecting the right to free speech. New Hampshire’s law is different than Massachusetts’, but we will closely review today’s decision to determine its impact, if any, on our state.”
