Join us and the statewide pro-life coalition of organizations for our next day of action on Friday, July 16 from 11AM-1PM in Seaside Heights! We will be coming together for a peaceful prayer walk to stop S3030 (the radical so-called Reproductive Freedom Act). This is a great opportunity to bring your kids and baby strollers for a beautiful stroll along the boardwalk while simultaneously educating the public about this dangerous bill. This is not a protest or loud rally. We will be praying as we walk using the signs and handouts our coalition provides to communicate a strong prolife message. You can walk for 20 minutes or two hours – it’s up to you!

The New Jersey Legislature will not meet again until after the November general election, except for any unseen emergencies. This is good news! Because of your constant and tireless efforts over the past eight months to protest outside of legislative offices, Senate President Steve Sweeney and Speaker of the Assembly Craig Coughlin never scheduled this bill to be heard in committee! Now we must begin educating the public about this bill since the mainstream state media refuses to report fair and balanced objections in their limited coverage.

Details of the event:

Please Register for future details and specific event related information leading up to the walk.

Let’s act like lives depend on it – because they do!

I want to thank the hundreds of people who joined pro-life organizations and speakers from across New Jersey last week in Trenton. Your voice is being heard! Governor Murphy and the pro-abortion legislators assumed the so-called Reproductive Freedom Act would easily pass through committee, quickly receive majority support for a full floor vote in both chambers, and be on the governor’s desk within weeks of the bill being introduced. That was October of 2020. It is now June 2021, and the bill has not received a committee hearing in either the Senate or Assembly.

If Governor Murphy wants to borrow 4 billion dollars even though the state does not need it, the supermajority of his party approves his reckless fiscal management.

If Governor Murphy wants to extend his emergency powers until the end of December 2021, but at the same time officially end the state health emergency in June 2021, the supermajority of his party approves his relentless thirst for unchecked power.

However, if Governor Murphy wants to pass the so-called Reproductive Freedom Act, the supermajority of his party is not on board. Why?

Because it really is the most radical and dangerous abortion law ever introduced in any state!

It specifically says the preborn baby has no rights under state law, and therefore all abortions without restrictions of gestational development – up to the point of birth, will be forever legal in this state. Furthermore, if anyone, including non-residents of the state of New Jersey cannot afford a late term abortion, you will have to pay for it!

That would cause anyone with a conscience to pause and reassess their blind allegiance to their party’s leader’s demand for an unnecessary abortion bill. We are thankful to be working with Democrats for Life to try to convince legislators on both sides of the aisle to not allow this bill to move forward.

On a tragic note, the vote we alerted you to last week did not go our way. The Senate Health Committee voted to erode parental rights: schools will no longer be required to ask for a parent’s consent before administering student surveys regarding their sexual activities and beliefs.

Here are the votes of the Senate Health Committee from last Thursday:

YES vote = I do not believe schools should ask parents for their permission

NO vote = I believe schools should ask parents to actively grant permission

Joseph Vitale, Woodbridge (D) – Chair James Holzapfel, Brick (R)
Fred Madden, Turnersville, (D) – Vice-Chair Holly Schepisi, Westwood (R)
Richard Codey, Livingston (D) Robert Singer, Lakewood (R)
Vin Gopal, Freehold (D)
Joseph Lagana, Paramus (D)

 

Thank you for the action you took on this issue. We continue to fight for you!

Protecting your family,

Shawn Hyland
Executive Director

Governor Murphy and abortion extremists are working overtime to get the dangerous and unconscionable so-called Reproductive Freedom Act passed before Election Day this November.

They are insisting this bill be heard and voted on despite many within their own party requesting to postpone the vote until the lame-duck session after the general election this fall.

The pro-life coalition of groups across New Jersey is gathering in Trenton the day after the primary election to rally for life!

I look forward to seeing you on June 9th.

Your efforts to stop the reckless and dangerous so-called Reproductive Freedom Act is working! New Jersey political media recently covered the bill’s lack of support in both parties. Your advocacy, your prayers, and your participation in pro-life rallies across the state is making a difference, but this is no time to quit. The Big Abortion Industry, led by Planned Parenthood, is not giving up their demands to codify abortion up to birth and force medical professionals to perform abortions against their own conscience with your money.

The coalition of pro-life organizations working together to defeat this bill have organized our next Day of Action, Prayer, and Protest on Saturday, April 17 from 10AM-Noon.

Location:

The offices of Senator Joe Vitale and Assemblyman Craig Coughlin
569 Rahway Ave., Woodbridge, NJ 07095

Please register for this pro-life rally here!

Senator Vitale is the chair of the Senate Health Committee and Assemblyman Coughlin is the Speaker of the Assembly. These men have distinct leadership roles in the legislature to stop this bill from moving forward.

Let’s act like lives depend on it – because they do!

Dear Pastor,

As you are aware, the so-called Reproductive Freedom Act is the most radical and dangerous abortion bill ever to be introduced in our state – or possibly any state. For this reason, we launched JerseyVotesNo.com to inform everyone on the real threats this bill would have on the health of women, the safety of minors, the rights of parents, and the consequences pro-life medical workers will face.

We are working together with a coalition of pro-life groups in our state to protect babies in the womb. Our efforts have proven successful. This bill is a priority for Governor Murphy and his wife Tammy, yet the bill has stagnated and still awaits a committee hearing. To counter these efforts, Planned Parenthood and a large coalition of pro-abortion groups are requesting clergy sign a letter of support for abortion up to birth to remain legal forever in our state by passing the so-called Reproductive Freedom Act! You can find their letter here.

Now, I look to you to communicate with the legislature the heart of God. I need you to add your name to a letter that opposes the so-called Reproductive Freedom Act. It is imperative that legislators know the real position of pastors in New Jersey regarding unrestricted taxpayer-funded, late-term abortions. If they don’t hear from you, they will only be hearing from other members of the clergy giving their moral stamp of approval to end the lives of babies in the womb.

Sign this letter today through our online form and share this email with your network of like-minded pastors. If you can sign on behalf of your church, please include the church name. If not, you can add your support by only signing your individual name and town.

Thank you for spreading the word!

Sincerely,

Shawn Hyland
Executive Director
