Abortion and Contraception

Birth control pills are available directly from pharmacies in New Hampshire without a prior prescription from a doctor. There are no wait periods for abortions, but minors have to get permission from a parent or a judge before the procedure can take place. In 2021 New Hampshire added a ban on abortion after 24 weeks gestation, with very limited exceptions. The Legislature debates changes to abortion laws every year. Explore the latest efforts below.
