    Hanover resident Nancy Welch, of Upper Valley for Abortion Rights Coalition, left, talks with Still North Books employee Skylar Miklus, right, as she delivers a second stocking of Plan B to the store in Hanover, N.H., on Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2022. The Reproductive Freedom Fund of New Hampshire (RFFNH) is providing the over-the-counter emergency contraceptive pill for free at 20 locations throughout the state including Still North Books and Lalo's Taqueria in the Upper Valley. “(The RFFNH is) trying as much as possible to support that whole bigger picture of reproductive justice. So that does mean making it possible for women or other people who can become pregnant to have access to surgical abortions, medication abortion, but also to emergency contraceptives," said Welch. “If you’re looking at needing emergency contraception and it’s $50.00 to get this little box, that can be insurmountable for many people.” (Valley News - James M.

"We just, from the beginning wanted a safe space for everybody," said Moran. "If (reproductive rights are) in jeapordy why not help out if I've got a space. It doesn't cost me anything."
