Republican Governor Chris Sununu's NH Supreme Court Chief Justice nominee, Attorney General Gordon MacDonald, says there is no effort that he is aware of to chip away at Roe v Wade.
Gordon MacDonald lives under a rock apparently. Or maybe not -- MacDonald worked for seven years as chief of staff and legislative director to former New Hampshire Senator Gordon Humphrey, a well known anti-abortion-access politician, when he supported a rash of anti-abortion legislation. Later in his career, MacDonald and his firm Nixon Peabody wrote an amicus brief on behalf of the Manchester Diocese in support of the state's position in Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood. In that case Ayotte, as Attorney General, took an unconstitutional parental notification law to the Supreme Court of the United States. And MacDonald says he has "no memory" of voting for or taking a position on an extreme anti-abortion platform at the 2016 Republican National Convention when he attended as a delegate for anti-abortion-access Presidential candidate Marco Rubio.
