Yesterday, pro life organizations, including Family Policy Alliance of New Jersey, participated in a day of outrage to protect babies in the womb from the most atrocious and radical abortion bill ever introduced in our state, and possibly in any state – The Reproductive Freedom Act! We gathered outside the offices of the two primary senate sponsors – Senator Loretta Weinberg and Senator Linda Greenstein to remind them that every child has the right to live and it is the government’s job to protect them.
The Reproductive Freedom Act would codify into law the right to abort a baby minutes before birth, and equally threaten women’s health, jeopardize children’s safety, and criminalize medical health professionals.
It is outrageous and we are outraged. Therefore, despite extremely inclement weather, pro-life organizations and supporters gathered for hours in solidarity to protect these vulnerable people and professions from the negative impact this bill would have on their health, their career, and for many – their life.

“Moms deserve better than risky abortions performed by non-physicians. Babies deserve better than painful third trimester abortions. Medical workers deserve better than forcing them against their conscience and religious beliefs to participate in the abortion procedure. New Jersey, we must do better.”
Rev. Clenard Childress of L.E.A.R.N.
“The Reproductive Freedom Act at its core is the most heartless proposed legislation in the history of the state. The sponsors of this draconian bill have disregarded the polling of New Jersey citizens that found 82% of its citizens want lawful restrictions on abortion. This is a clear example of the few imposing their will upon the many.”
Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life
“New Jersey Right to Life is proud to stand in solidarity with other pro-life groups and the growing number of informed NJ citizens to express our outrage at this unjust and inhumane legislation and demand that it be immediately withdrawn from consideration.”
Christine Flaherty, Director of LIFENET
“This legislature knows of abortion’s harm to babies who feel excruciating pain at 20 weeks through our post card campaign. This is outrageous to present this bill to NJ citizens.”

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. Please use our Action Center to tell the Health Committee members to vote NO on the Reproductive Freedom Act.
Let’s make New Jersey better,
