After making October “Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Month,” Governor Murphy announces support for pro-abortion bill

Trenton NJ, Governor Murphy made clear his support for the Reproductive Freedom Act. In response, Shawn Hyland, Director of Advocacy at Family Policy Alliance of New Jersey issued the following statement:

“Just this past January, Governor Murphy declared October to be “Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Month.” At the beginning of the solemn month, it is the epitome of hypocrisy to today announce his support for a radical abortion proposal. We expect that if this plan is like similar proposals (now laws) in New York and Illinois, it would allow the taking of life up to the moment of birth for any reason in New Jersey.

“It is indisputable that Governor Murphy and so many others in Trenton are beholden to the senseless taking of life through abortion and the industry built around it. From increasing Planned Parenthood funding to $20 million per year when New Jersey could least afford it, to refusing to enforce important health and safety standards in standing-room-only abortion clinics during the Coronavirus pandemic, his stance is clear – abortion anywhere, anytime regardless of cost, safety of the mother, or the lives of babies in the womb.

“During a month when countless New Jersey parents mourn the tragic loss of unborn children and infants, it is sobering that efforts to advance the publicly funded and virtually limitless killing of children would be the singular focus of the Murphy administration.


“We call on Governor Murphy and the pro-abortion contingent in the NJ legislature to stop promoting policies that legally advance genocide in the Garden State.”

  1. Can’t make this up…. NJ voted for this clown and NJ gets what it voted for..

  2. What is the bill?

  3. Guvnor gotta placate the corporate libs, despite of what he sold to the masses. Americans want rational abortion options, not a late pregnancy on demand abortion.

    Corporates want young women to be too afraid of men for a serious relationship in order to focus on consumption. I work with a lot of these ladies, 20 years after: smart, fit, good looking even at 40. Yet single, childless and miserable. They’ve been sports f@kin since 13 and while I won’t know or ask, I won’t be surprised if some of them had to terminate an unexpected pregnancy. At 40, they are perfect corporate workers and spending machines. 6-figure salaries + miserable = all focus on work and spending to feel better for a moment.

    The laws are written to support consumer economy. Nothing else. Not moral considerations or real life best practices.

  4. How about making October, Lifetober — “No Abortion, Save an Infant’s Life Month” instead.

  5. Sorry in advance that my opinion will offend both pro life and pro choice camps. A life long centrist who has favored pro choice with reasonable term limits. The far left has gone way too far on issues and too many former moderates have mindlessly followed. Right NOW , late term abortions are not the usual but the thought of one is not pleasant and should be avoided absent extenuating circumstances. Time for pro choice crowd to respect the rights of a truly functioning life as best determined by medical community. Politicians being pulled by party tide into supporting late term abortions is the opposite of progress , it is simply callous.

  6. Agreed.
    It is simple callous to kill your child, whether they are moments old, months old or years old.

    Killing your child is killing your child, no matter how many rationalizations you employ to make it OK.

  7. “But it’s my body”
    That’s true…but the life your trying to eliminate belongs to someone else who has no voice in stopping your feminist ideology. Pro choice discursive strategies have failed to engage in open, honest discussion about abortion and its horror. Choice and reproductive freedom? Not on my watch.

  8. “But It’s my Sperm.”
    My sperm.
    My choice.

  9. I am old enough to remember what used to happen before abortions were legal in the United States. If you think that getting rid of Roe v Wade is going to change anything, I think you are wrong. Women will still find a way to get an abortion. The country will simply go back to “back-alley” abortions by unscrupulous people done under unsafe conditions. Those who have the money will travel to a country that permits abortion. And some will find a coat hanger risking their own health in order to abort.

    Saying that this law allows an obstetrician to kill child after he or she is born is simply not true.

    Only about 1.2% of abortions are performed at or after 21 weeks according to the CDC. It is ludicrous for people to think that moments before birth, a woman is going to ask for and get an abortion. It does not happen. I’d like someone to provide me with one documented case where moments before birth, the fetus was aborted.

    One case of aborting late term are women who have life-threatening hypertension during the last trimester. The fetuses they are carrying are too small to be viable and the mother’s life is in danger. Most anti-abortion groups do support the saving of a mother’s life even if it means aborting the fetus at this late time.

    Most people who view abortion as murder do so because of their religious beliefs. This country separates church and state. Yes, a fetus, if left to grow, has the potential to become a human being. And the decision to abort definitely removes that potential. The question of whether it is murder is the issue. Pro-life people believe it is and pro-choice people do not. I am often asked, “How would you feel if you had been aborted by your mother”? The answer is, I would not feel – since I would not have existed.

    A pro-life person can feel free to practice what they preach. But imposing their beliefs on others because they believe so strongly that the potential life that begins at conception is somehow deserving of the same rights as a born child is what this boils down to. You can pass all the restrictive laws you want – you can make abortion=murder and women will still take the risk of becoming “criminals” – you can close down all the clinics that perform abortion – but abortions will continue to be performed.

    1. no one is promoting eliminating Roe v Wade , just scare tactics from the left

  10. On January 2nd of this year, Republican legislators(including 39 senators) filed an Amicus Curie Brief asking the Supreme Court to consider whether Roe v Wade should be overruled.

    Abortion was mentioned 39 times at the Republican convention.

    Sen. Hawley posted just last month-

    So did Sen. Cotton-

    Sure is a lotta “no one”‘s out there, James.

  11. I am old enough to remember what used to happen before MURDER was legal in the United States.
    If you think MAKING MURDER ILLEGAL is going to change anything, I think you are wrong.
    People will still find a way to KILL OTHERS.

    The country will simply go back to MURDERS by unscrupulous people done under unsafe conditions.
    Those who have the money will hire a hit man to perform the murder.
    And some will do it themselves, risking their own health and freedom in order to MURDER.

    Thank God we made MURDER LEGAL in the USA.

    Same argument.
