On January 5, Governor Murphy signed a Senate Joint Resolution designating each October as “Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Month” in New Jersey.
October is now here. The first remembrance month in our state for infants lost as babies in the womb is officially underway. The New Jersey Resolution states the purpose of the month is to “honor all those who have survived a pregnancy loss or lost a child, recognize the grief suffered by families who experience such loss, help comfort and encourage the healing of families in their time of need, and give those who have endured such a traumatic event hope that in the future, the number of women who suffer pregnancy and infant loss can be reduced and the majority of infants can be born healthy, safe, and free from harm”.
I could not agree more.
But one person seems to disagree – Governor Murphy.
He used the weight of executive influence to kick off this solemn remembrance month by announcing the Reproductive Freedom Act on October 2. This would codify abortion without any restrictions into law.
…So much for infants being born healthy, safe, and free from harm!

Currently, there are no restrictions on abortion in New Jersey. We are the most unsafe state in America for babies in the womb. The ratio of abortion centers compared to prolife pregnancy centers is the worst in the nation. The Reproductive Freedom Act will rob future legislators and governors from legislating abortion regulations if Roe v. Wade is ever overturned. The current pro-abortion lawmakers want to end this debate in New Jersey once and for all. Abortion at any time, for any reason, without any restrictions – without end.
The abortion industry advocates in our state are united in their demands. Thrive NJ is a coalition of groups working to enact extreme abortion laws that threaten every baby in the womb. Please earnestly pray for them. Also, pray for the coalition of pro-life groups in our state working together to protect life from conception to natural death.
May we never back down from our biblical convictions that every child has the right to live. We should not only mourn the babies lost in miscarriages, stillbirth or sudden infant death syndrome, but also those who suffered at the hands of an abortionist.
Be watchful and prayerful in the weeks and months ahead. We will need to mobilize, along with others, to stop this bill from being passed. Don’t let yourself feel defeated: we’ve been able to win before! The supermajority in Trenton could not pass recreational marijuana or mandate vaccines in 2020 because the voices opposing these bills were louder than those supporting them. We must now do the same against abortion.
Let’s make New Jersey better,
Director of Advocacy
