New Jersey Pro-Life Organizations Rally Against “Reproductive Freedom Act” at Noon on June 9th at Trenton’s War Memorial Building

TRENTON, NJ (June 8) – A coalition of New Jersey pro-life organizations, physicians, clergy and activists has scheduled a protest against the pending “Reproductive Freedom Act” legislation for Wednesday, June 9.  The event will run from noon to 2 p.m. at the Trenton War Memorial Building. Organizers are inviting everyone to attend.  It will be the first major event of the 2021 race for New Jersey Governor. Phil Murphy has called on the legislature to pass the bill before June 30.

Yet a scant 15% of people surveyed want abortion permitted at any time during pregnancy, according to a 2021 Marist poll.  Only seven countries in the world, including North Korea, China, and Vietnam, allow abortion after 20 weeks of an unborn baby’s development. Yet the “Reproductive Freedom Act” (RFA) asserts a right to abortion without any restriction related to gestation — meaning that a baby, ready to be delivered, could instead be aborted at that moment. Fewer than one in five people support spending our tax dollars on abortions, the Marist poll found.

The RFA would block parental notification, allow non-physicians to perform dangerous abortions, and force medical workers to provide abortion services, even if doing so violated their personal religious or conscience objections.

“The so-called Reproductive Freedom Act is a feature of Governor Murphy’s ‘move New Jersey forward’ reelection campaign. Our state already ranks #2 among 50 states and Washington D.C. for the percentage of pregnancies that dreadfully end in abortion. It seems our Governor will not be satisfied until we shamefully hold the title as the #1 abortion state in America.” Shawn Hyland, Executive Director Family Policy Alliance of New Jersey

“Evidence is mounting that New Jersey intends to become the Garden State for the harvesting of fetal tissue,” said Dr. Kathleen Ruddy, a retired surgeon. “In fact, this appears to be the driving force, the motive, and the objective of Governor Murphy’s abortion bill.”

The ‘Reproductive Freedom Act’ (A-4848 / S-3030) would use public taxpayer funds to pay for abortion services to anyone, coming from any state.  “It would subsidize human trafficking by paying for the abortions of their slaves and potentially subjecting them to forced sterilization,” according to Rev. Greg Quinlan of The Center For Garden State Families.

Experts note that the Black community is disproportionately the target of abortions, and that abortion accounts for 61 percent of Black deaths in America.  “So this is black genocide,” said Rev. Clenard Childress of Montclair.

“S3030/A4848 is perversely laser-focused on barbarically destroying the lives of infants, both before and after they are born. We ask all New Jerseyans to contact their legislators and demand that they reject this disgraceful, inhumane infanticide bill,” said Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life.
