What are they saying about Gov. Murphy’s abortion expansion?

May 19

Last week, Governor Murphy relaunched his plan to enrich New Jersey’s Big Abortion industry. His renewed call to mandate insurance companies cover the entire abortion cost without any copayments, and to codify into state law that non-physicians can perform unsafe abortions on women, has rightly infuriated people across the state.

“Gov. Murphy’s radical proposal calls for free abortions with no limits right up to birth, and he wants struggling New Jersey families to pay for abortions for everyone through even higher taxes and health care premiums.”
Senator Steve Oroho (R), Senate Minority Leader

“The Catholic Bishops of New Jersey join to express our disappointment and outrage over Governor Murphy’s announcement regarding proposed legislation to expand access to abortion in New Jersey, an act that by its very nature terminates human life. If enacted, this legislation would mandate health insurance coverage for abortions, codify regulations that allow non-physicians to perform abortions; and create a public fund that dedicates taxpayer money to pay for abortions.”
Joint statement from the New Jersey Catholic bishops on Governor Murphy’s proposal that all health insurers in New Jersey provide coverage for abortion services

“Governor Murphy and the pro-abortion legislators want everyone onboard their sinking ship of free abortion on demand. But more and more people are seeing abortion for what it is: a grave injustice and assault on women and their babies in the womb. In my church, immigrants, African Americans, and people across generations are united for life.”
– Brennan Coughlin, Fellowship CrossPoint, Chesterfield

 “This bill is demoralizing and tears at the very fabric of our morality. As legislation goes, so goes our society, and the governor is plunging us into an even deeper state of immorality with this bill. This bill is detestable and no one with a Biblical worldview should support anything that puts the life of any child at risk, whether in the womb or outside of the womb… it makes no difference.”
Pastor Alex McCormick, Impact Church, Burlington, NJ

Friends, these little babies are precious. Planned Parenthood, NJ Family Planning League, New Jersey Abortion Access Fund, and many others might have no concern for the lives of the least of these, but we do!

The work of the pro-life movement in NJ will be hard and strenuous in the months and years ahead. I am encouraged by the numerous pro-life voices and organizations that are working together to save lives and to assist women to find the help they need. Be on the lookout for future emails telling you how to take action to stop this heinous injustice against these little ones.

Fighting for your families here in the Garden State!
