Abortion Front and Center in Gubernatorial Campaign

Commentary below is from Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life.  She is asking for all who live in New Jersey to contact their Assembly Member and their State Senators to vote No on S3030/A4848.  And please get out and vote for  candidate Jack Ciattarelli for Governor of New Jersey!

Ciattarelli Murphy

As expected, NJ Governor Murphy and pro-abortion forces used the news about the Texas law which will protect babies when their hearts begin to beat as a rallying cry to pass the radical, draconian Freedom to Kill Act (S3030/A4848) aka the NJ Reproductive Freedom Act.

This article linked below covers a press event that the Governor held  yesterday.  Despite his protestations to the contrary, this issue is most definitely political as indicated by the headline.

To his credit, Republican gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli responded by pointing out that it is Murphy’s position that is the one that is extreme.

Please contact your State Senator and two Assembly members and let them know you expect them to vote No on S3030/A4848.

Please read the article and educate as many individuals as possible about this issue and the candidates’ positions on it.  Please share it with as many friends and family members as possible.

NJ Abortion Bill Remains in Limbo for Now – Lame Duck Concerns Loom

New Jersey residents – please see the message below from the New Jersey Right to Life.  You are being asked to contact your legislators in the coming months and let them know of your opposition to S3030/A4848.  Information on these bills as well as a sample email are provided in the link below. 

NJRTL

Thanks to your efforts and a team of dedicated Pro-Life Groups Working Together, the radical NJ Freedom to Kill bill has failed to get a committee hearing thus far.  Although the NJ media has largely ignored our advocacy efforts or provided extremely biased, unfair and lopsided coverage to our side, it is clear that legislators have been hearing our message.  However, as indicated in the article , Planned Parenthood and their co-horts are going to make a push to try to pass this in the lame duck session.  Read the article

Please make every effort to communicate your opposition to S3030/A4848 in the months ahead to your legislators, and especially between November and the second week in January, which is the lame duck session.  Please pass this on to 10 friends and family members and provide details about the radical  nature of this bill and  then ask them to pass this on to 10 more people and so on.  Please use social media and any other means at your disposal to educate people about this extreme draconian bill.

Take Action: NJ Board of Medical Examiners Proposed Rule Change on Abortion

If you live in New Jersey, please read the information below provided by New Jersey Right to Life and then comment on the Proposed Rule Changes on Abortion published by NJ Board of Medical Examiners.  You have until March 5th to comment.  

Call to action 2

Please note:  It has come to our attention that the NJ Board of Medical Examiners’ website does not make the process for commenting easy so we have updated this alert with specific information to make the process less difficult for you to comment.  Thank you for taking action on this important matter!

The NJ Board of Medical Examiners Published Proposed Rule Changes on Abortion today.  Interested persons can submit comments, information or arguments concerning the proposed changes.  We need to flood the NJ Board of Medical Examiners with our comments opposing these changes on or before March 5, 2021. 
Please share this information with health care professionals, post-abortive women and anyone you think will be concerned about these proposed changes.

Here is a link to the Proposed Changes  

Comments
In order to ensure your comments are received, please send your comments
concerning any rule proposals via email to DCAProposal@dca.lps.state.nj.us.  

Please include the following in your email:

Email Subject Line:  Surgery, Special Procedures, and Anesthesia Services Performed in an Office Setting
 Email Body:  Provide Comments to the Rule Proposal, 
Include: Your  Name,  Affiliation and Contact Information (email address and phone number).

The NJ Board of Medical Examiners voted unanimously to change these rules in September.  Not surprisingly, most of these changes seem to be in line with language in S3030/A4848, the NJ Freedom to Kill Act.  The studies they name in their Rule Proposal to justify the changes are clearly biased studies funded by wealthy abortion supporters. Contrary to their claims, these changes in no way make abortion safer for women.  

According to their Release, the changes and repeal include the following: 

  • repealing the Termination of Pregnancy rule, N.J.A.C. 13:35-4.2, that singles out abortion care for targeted regulation by, among other things, requiring that all terminations of pregnancy be performed only by a physician, and barring office-based terminations beyond 14 weeks gestation; 
  • clearing the path for Advanced Practice Nurses, Physician Assistants, and Certified Nurse Midwives and Certified Midwives to perform early aspiration terminations of pregnancy (in addition to medication-based termination of pregnancy, which is already permitted) and clarifying that these providers are authorized to provide miscarriage treatment; and 
  • updating the regulations to integrate reproductive care within the generally applicable rules designed to ensure the safety of patients who undergo surgery or special procedures in an office setting.

Here is a link to an article about the proposed changes.

We thank those who attended our November 11th and December 2nd  Day of Outrage Protests and for acting on our December 4th Alert to ensure that the NJ Freedom to Kill Act (S3030/A4848) was not added to the agenda for the Senate Health Committee hearing.  We had a very good turn-out at the past two protests and received a lot of favorable feedback from the public and even got some favorable press coverage!  We are planning a couple of additional events this month and in January which are included in this email.  

We have been working non-stop; participating in webinars, interviews with media, writing op-eds, and collaborating with several pro-life groups to defeat this horrible bill.   We are continuing to monitor the legislative schedule and will keep you informed of any new movement on the bill.  In the meantime, I wanted to encourage you to continue to take the following action on S3030/A4848 and ask you to mark your calendars for some upcoming events.

The Following Action is Still Needed

Important:  We are hearing that legislators’ phones are either busy, not answered, or their voicemail boxes are full which prevents us from speaking to a live person or leaving a message so we are urging you to also email and send letters via postal mail so that they can’t say they didn’t get your message! Please do this even if you a have contacted your legislators before. We know this will take extra time, especially during the holiday season, but we ask that you take a few minutes while writing out your Christmas cards to write a letter to these legislators on behalf of babies in the womb who have no voice.

Please take the following action, then share this information with 10 friends and ask them to take action and then share it with 10 more friends and ask them to do the same.

BLACK LIVES MATTER? THEN WHY DOES NEW JERSEY LEGISLATE BLACK GENOCIDE?

Please Join in a Day of Outrage – Wednesday, November 11, 2020 in New Jersey.  Information about these two events is listed below.  And please contact the sponsors of the Reproductive Freedom Act and express your outrage at this bill!  Use your own words when calling or use the sample message below.  

from Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life 

We Need your help now to educate and inform the public of this callous abominable bill in the New Jersey legislature that makes New Jersey the Abortion Mecca of the world at the expense of the New Jersey Tax Payer.

You will pay for any abortion at anytime for people from anywhere as long as they come to New Jersey to have the abortion.

New Jersey citizens must pay for the abortion!!! Babies born alive from botched abortion may be killed with impunity.

Abortions will be able to be performed by persons who are not licensed physicians!  Women’s Health???

“Day Of Outrage!” Call For Prayerful Protest

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:
·  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.
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.

For more information on this radical bill, please view NJRTL’s Facebook
live session HERE

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. Clenard Childress of New Calvary Baptist Church in Montclair. Please register so we can contact you with updated information this week.

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

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.

You can also send a prewritten message to your three legislators from NJRTL’s legislative action center HERE

 

President Trump Signs Pro-LifeGeneva Declaration Promoting Women’s Health & Strengthening the Family

Thirty-two (32) countries signed the Geneva Consensus Declaration on October 22, 2020!  This Declaration represents over one (1) billion people from every corner of the world.  This is very encouraging news for pro-life/pro-family organizations.  Six (6) of these countries were co-sponsors, including the U.S.A.  (see link below to see which countries took a stand for life and family).

My thanks to President Trump for signing this Declaration (see link below to read this one-page declaration).  And many thanks to Marie Tasy, Executive Director, New Jersey Right to Life for passing on this information. 

 

Today, the Trump administration signed the Geneva Consensus Declaration, a multinational agreement on Promoting Women’s Health and Strengthening the Family.   The United States was joined by 31 other country signatories.  

As explained by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, “This Declaration further strengthens the coalition to achieve these four pillars: (1) better health for women, (2) the preservation of human life, (3) strengthening of family as the foundational unit of society, and (4) protecting every nation’s national sovereignty in global politics.”

You can read the text of the Declaration: HERE

This Declaration is the fundamental opposite of the “so-called Reproductive Freedom Act” introduced by pro-abortion extremist Governor Phil Murphy and his like-minded friends in the legislature. 

Please share this life-affirming information with pro-life family and friends.

The election is 12 days away. There is so much at stake in this election concerning the sanctity of human life.    Please don’t forget to vote for President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence and all the candidates endorsed by New Jersey Right to Life PAC.  View a list of our endorsed candidates and voting information by clicking on this link:  HERE

NJ Reproductive Freedom Act is Raw Abuse of Power

The following is a press release from Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life.

 

New Jersey Right to Life:  Reproductive Freedom Act is Raw Abuse of Power that Will Oppress the Will of NJ Voters

On October 2nd the Murphy Administration and pro-abortion legislators announced their plans to introduce a radical abortion bill to expand abortion that appears to be similar to one signed into law by NY Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2019.  View the announcement by Governor Murphy Here

Although the proposed legislation is sure to appease the abortion industry and a small minority of Governor Murphy’s pro-abortion supporters to shore up his base for his re-election, this type of extreme measure is not supported by the majority of people in our state or across our nation who support life protective laws and limits on abortion.   That is surely why the majority party and Governor will not seek voter approval on this type of measure, but instead seek to act in an autocratic manner to oppress the will of the people. 

This announcement follows the unanimous vote made by the NJ Board of Medical Examiners on September 15th to make abortion less safe for women.  The Rule change will now allow abortions to be performed by non-physicians and permit abortions beyond 14 weeks gestation to be performed in an office setting. 

Abortion is not healthcare.  It is an act of violence that wounds countless women and brutally and painfully takes the lives of so many innocent children.  Contrary to the claims of those who make a profit from the bodies of women and the killing of innocent children, abortion is not a safe procedure and laws like this will surely place more women’s lives in danger.
