Your help is needed immediately to stop the Reproductive Freedom Act, the most radical abortion bill ever proposed in this state. NJ already holds the infamous status of the most unsafe state in the nation for a baby in the womb, as abortion facilities outnumber pro-life pregnancy centers, 50 -37. As the life movement continues to win the public debate regarding protections for babies in the womb, Gov. Murphy, Sen. Loretta Weinberg, Sen. Linda Greenstein and 14 Assembly members have put forth a bill that would seal the fate of the unborn for decades to come in our state.
Currently, NJ has no restrictions on abortion. Any abortion regulations that passed the legislative process in previous decades were found to be unconstitutional by activist judges in our state. Therefore, our abortion laws reflect those of Communist China and North Korea. The Reproductive Freedom Act will now codify into law the extreme anti-life policies practiced in only a handful of nations.
- Babies can be aborted up to the point of birth.
- Pregnant teenage moms can abort their children without the abortionist or school officials ever notifying parents.
- Late-term abortions will be fully paid for by your taxes and your health insurance.
- Conscience protections for medical workers will be removed, forcing pro-life medical workers to assist in the abortion procedure.
- Non-physicians can perform risky and unsafe abortions on women.
- Annual funding for Planned Parenthood will be mandated despite the budgetary process and priorities of future administrations.
The Murphy administration and pro-abortion Democrats have introduced this bill in the middle of a health pandemic forcing the lockdown of the statehouse grounds. No one is allowed in the statehouse unless invited, and no group can assemble on the statehouse lawn in protest. However, gatherings at local district offices of legislators are being planned.
We need you to immediately contact the Health Committees in the Senate and Assembly. The bill is most likely scheduled to be heard in committee within weeks after election day. After filling out our Action Alert, please call committee members to tell them to vote NO on the Reproductive Freedom Act.

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,
