'You're a Murderer': New Hampshire Representative Yells at Pro-Abortion Rights Protesters

A New Hampshire Republican State Representative engaged with pro-abortion rights protesters outside the statehouse in Concord on Thursday, May 5, calling them “murderers.”

The protesters had gathered in response to a leaked Supreme Court draft ruling published by Politico suggesting Roe v Wade would be overturned.

Demonstrators can be heard shouting “shame on you” as politicians entered the courthouse on Thursday. Susan DeLemus, who represents Strafford District 24 in the New Hampshire House, turns to the crowd and yells the phrase back at them. “You’re a murderer,” she is heard yelling several times, pointing to protesters. DeLemus then says, “I am a murderer, I murdered my own baby,” an apparent reference to an abortion the representative said she had decades ago. Credit: Colin Booth via Storyful
