NJCA Applauds Gov. Murphy and NJ Legislators for Swift Action on Abortion Protection

July 1, 2022

Newark – NJCA Director of Policy and Advocacy Maura Collinsgru today released the following statement on the abortion protection legislation signed into law by NJ Governor Phil Murphy:

“We applaud Governor Murphy and our state Legislators for their swift action in creating legal protections for people traveling from out of state into New Jersey for abortion care, and for the medical providers who serve them. Following the U.S. Supreme Court decision that stripped millions of Americans of reproductive rights and threatens their health and well-being, it’s vital that New Jersey do more than protect our own whenever possible. We must also protect women and people seeking abortion care from rogue states prosecuting them and their providers.

“We urge all our elected officials and all New Jerseyans to continue to fight for the health and reproductive rights of people across the country, and to take a stand against the anti-democracy forces that have politicized our judicial process at the highest level.”
