Action Alert
Senator Warren and Senator Menendez calling to shut down Pregnancy Resource Centers.
 

A letter to to Senators Warren and Menendez:

Your call to shut down pregnancy resource centers (PRC’s) is anti-woman and would in fact drastically limit the choices of pregnant mothers. 

It is true that PRC’s discourage women from abortion. Their stated mission is to empower women who want to carry their children to term by eliminating the barriers that stand in their way.

The fact is that Roe vs. Wade has been overturned, and abortion is now outlawed or restricted in about half of the United States. PRC’s have been ready for this moment for decades. They fill a gap for pregnant moms that it would take the government years to patch.  

Today, over 2,700 PRC’s across all 50 states serve millions of women from all walks of life regardless of race, religion, marital status, or income. 

They provide 

And you want to deprive women of these desperately needed resources at this critical time? Who do you think will replace these centers?    Does Planned Parenthood provide free diapers, clothing, and financial aid?

And to Senator Menendez: You have campaigned on your Catholic faith, but this attack on PRC’s – many of which are funded and staffed by faithful Catholics – is a betrayal of your Church. 

Do not restrict women’s choices.   Stop your political attacks on pregnancy resource centers.

Say No to A4350/S2918,
Governor Murphy's Abortion Sanctuary Bill

7/6/2022

Bill A4350/S2918 was written by Planned Parenthood and Governor Murphy.  It was introduced on 6/20/22.  This legislation is all part of larger plan to make NJ a sanctuary state for abortion.  The bill expands on components of the Abortion bill Murphy signed on January 13, 2022 and  two bills he signed on July 1, 2022.  The bill's description says the following:

Stengthens access to reproductive health care; appropriates $20 million. 

 The current primary legislative sponsors are Assemblywoman Mila Jasey (D-27), Assemblywoman Shanique Speight (D-29), Assemblywoman Sadaf Jaffer (D-16), The current co-sponsors are Assemblywoman Angela McKnight (D-31) and Assemblyman Raj Mukherji (D-33), Annette Chaparro (D-33), Sterley Stanley (D-18), Britnee Timberlake (D-34). The identical Senate bill, S2918, was introduced by  Senator Teresa Ruiz (D-29) and  Senator Vin Gopal (D-11) on 6/23/22 who are prime sponsors.  Senator Brian Stack (D-33) is a co-sponsor.   

A4350/S2918 will include, but is not limited  to:

  • Providing "Free" abortions which will be mandated in all health insurance plans with no co-pays,no deductibles, no co-insurance.  This will increase premiums in all health insurance plans and make taxpayers complicit in the performance of, and funding for, all abortions that take place  in our state.  A religious employer organized as a non-profit entity may request an exclusion to cover abortion if the coverage conflicts with their bona fide religious beliefs and practices.  This exclusion will not apply if the abortion is necessary to save the life or health of the covered person.
  • Mandating in law the dangerous new rules adopted by the NJ Board of Medical Examiners that advanced practice nurses, certified nurse midwives and certified midwives can perform abortions in the first trimester as well as provide medication abortion.  It will also mandate in law that physician assistants can provide medication abortion and counseling.
  • Also mandating in law the dangerous new rules adopted by the NJ Board of Medical Examiners that abortions can be performed in an office setting regardless of the stage of gestation, as long as the facility has one operating room.
  • Expressly allowing minors to have abortions without parental consent or notification.
  • Incentivizing and providing immunity from prosecution for sex traffickers, sexual predators of minors, and disreputable and unqualified clinicians and anyone else who comes from a state that has protections for babies in the womb for "receiving or seeking an abortion, performing or inducing a termination of an abortion, or knowingly engaging in conduct that aids or abets the performance, receipt or inducement of an abortion." (Note: This section appears to have been included in Bill A3975/S2633 which previously passed both houses of the legislature  on 6/29/22  and was signed into law on 7/1/22 so it will most likely not be part of this legislation.)
  • Containing a one-sided, extremely biased and alarmingly broad language that will impose penalties and fines against individuals who peacefully exercise their first amendment rights outside abortion clinics.  See Sections 17-21 of A4350/S2918. View bill HERE              
  • Providing a recurring $20 million Reproductive Access Fund (paid for with taxpayer funds) to be automatically disbursed annually in the budget as listed below.

$ 5M to Expand training in abortion to increase the number of racial and ethnically diverse abortion providers.

$ 5M Grants to provide security personnel and law enforcement personnel at facilities providing abortions.

$10 M to provide "free" taxpayer-funded abortions for residents and non-residents who don't have insurance.
