After ringing in a New Year, each January we focus on the life issues, as this is the month when the infamous Roe v. Wade decision was handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973, leading to the termination nationally of more than 62 million babies in the womb.

Also, every two years we deal with what is infamously called “The Lame Duck Legislative Session.”  This year’s version began after the General Election on Nov. 2 and ran through Jan. 11. This is a time when some of the most egregious bills that the radical left wants to see passed into law get moved, and this year was no different.

The Reproductive Freedom Act was redrafted and pushed forward, ignoring all policies and procedures for bill hearings, the most important being that a bill should be posted and available for review five days before the scheduled hearing. With the liberals in control, those protocols went out the window. The bills were actually being delivered to the legislators as the committees held the hearing.

This new version (S49/A6260) had all the egregious points of the initial bills and would legalize abortion up to the point of birth. In the Assembly, it passed by a vote of 46-22, with four not voting and eight abstaining. In the Senate, the vote was 23-15, with two not voting. So as most New Jerseyans were dealing with the pandemic and the Omicron variant, the legislature took the opportunity to “get things done.”

Thank you to so many of you all over the state who responded to our call to action and made your voices heard to legislators on this outrageous bill. It’s important that we do so, even when it’s an uphill fight. We have the self-evident truth of life on our side, and we must continue to proclaim it. Someday, we WILL WIN the fight to protect life, and the mystery will be how our politicians of today could have been so hard-hearted and blind to the truth.

To that end, here are two more ways that you can actively stand for life:

In this context, it’s also fitting that we commemorate the life of an American Hero on Monday. Dr. Martin Luther King literally gave his life in the quest to uphold true equality. His quest for people of color to be treated equally was, on Dr. King’s part, a mission worth dying for. Let’s remember his sacrifice and critical contribution to upholding the life and dignity of all.

Yours for the Family,

Dear Friend,

Your help is needed immediately to stop the License to Kill Act. Formerly known as the so-called Reproductive Freedom Act, now renamed S49/A6260, this legislation “Codifies constitutional right to freedom of reproductive choice.”

This is the most radical abortion bill ever proposed in this state.

Under this legislation:

We have held protests and rallies throughout the state over this past year! Now, pro-abortion organizations are working behind the scenes and rushing these bills through in the last minutes of this Legislative Session.

We must make our voices heard!!

We need you to immediately contact your two Assembly Representatives and NJ State Senate and urge them to vote against the replacement bill for the Reproductive Freedom Act in the NJ Senate S49/A6260. (Codifies constitutional right to freedom of reproductive choice.)

It only takes a moment to send a message to them in our Action Center.

You may want to contact your state legislator’s office by phone as well. We will also email it to you once you have taken action in our Action Center.

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

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.

Your help is needed immediately to stop the Reproductive Freedom Act. The Montclair city council recently passed a resolution on January 19, 2021 calling for the passage of the “so-called Reproductive Freedom Act.”. This radical abortion bill, that prohibits parental notification and mandates taxpayer funding of abortion up to the point of birth, should not have the support of any local officials.

We must make sure that other New Jersey towns do not recklessly and dangerously pass these anti-life resolutions to appease the demanding Big Abortion Industry.

What can you do?

The coalition of pro-life organizations working together to defeat this bill have organized our next Day of Action, Prayer, and Protest on Saturday, March 20 from 10AM – Noon. Please register for further details and reminders. We will meet at the Montclair Municipal Building, 205 Clairmont Avenue, Montclair, NJ 07042

Dear Friends—

I need your help.

One of the encouraging stories of 2020 has been the faithful and sacrificial generosity of ministry partners like you. Though our giving was understandably impacted by COVID in the Spring, we ultimately hit our fundraising target for the fiscal year ending September 30.

Today, I am coming to you with an opportunity to DOUBLE your impact and investment in our work. Thanks to a generous ministry partner, Family Policy Foundation of New Jersey has a $25,000 year-end matching grant, meaning that every gift you send today will be matched dollar-for-dollar.

As of today, we have only raised $2,950 toward our $25,000 match.

Will you help us raise the remaining $22,050 today?

If you have not yet given this year, or if you have given and would like to further help us reach our match goal, I invite you to do so by sending a gift of $50, $100, $250, or $500.

Beyond what you can give, I also want to thank you for what you have done!

First, the NJ License to Kill Act (formerly the so-called Reproductive Freedom Act) was not added to the Health Committee hearings this week. THRIVE NJ, the abortion lobbyist coalition, was pressuring the chairs of both the Senate and Assembly Health Committees to add this bill to their agenda on Monday and Thursday. But  because of your calls and your presence at protests across the state, the bill has not been scheduled for a hearing. Thank you for your help in opposing this dangerous and radical bill. Additional protests and phone campaigns will be forthcoming.

Secondly, because of your activism, the LGBT textbook database bill was removed from the Senate agenda two weeks ago at the last minute. I, along with our volunteer legislative captains, have been in contact with key senators and bill sponsors to share our concerns on these types of bills that violate the fundamental religious beliefs of millions of New Jerseyeans. The NJDOE is now in the process of amending this bill because of the widespread opposition against it.

Thank you for your prayers, financial support, and engagement!

Let’s win back NJ,

Your help is needed immediately to stop the Reproductive Freedom Act, the most radical abortion bill ever proposed in this state. If this bill is passed, it will codify into law the extreme anti-life policies practiced in only a handful of nations.

This includes:

Governor Murphy and the current pro-abortion lawmakers want to end the debate over the right to life in New Jersey once and for all.  Their solution is simple: abortion at any time, for any reason, without any restrictions – without end.

What can you do?

First, join us and over a dozen pro life organizations for a Day of Action on Wednesday, Nov. 11, in a peaceful protest and prayer gathering led by Rev. Clernard Childress of New Calvary Baptist Church in Montclair. Please register so we can contact you with updated information next week.

We will meet at the offices of the two senate sponsors:

Wed, Nov. 11, 10 am–12 pm: Sen. Loretta Weinberg, 545 Cedar Lane, Teaneck, NJ (NOTE: This is a different location than was initially planned.)

Wed, Nov. 11, 2 pm—4 pm: Sen. Linda Greenstein, 1249 S River Rd #105, Cranbury, NJ

Second, I want to urge you to contact the bill sponsors and other key senators who will decide the fate of babies in the womb.  Please complete our action alert form and call the following:

Hello, my name is __________. I am calling about The Reproductive Freedom Act. This is the most dangerous and radical abortion bill ever proposed in our state. It violates conscience protections, puts women at risk in late-term abortions and abortions performed by non-physicians, and prohibits any protections for babies in the womb – even up to birth. I urge Senator/Assembly ___________  to vote NO. Can we count on him/her to help protect women and children from this unsafe law? 

The bill is most likely scheduled to be heard in committee within weeks.

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.

This includes:

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.

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