Florio Tribute: Planned Parenthood Action Fund of NJ

By Joey Fox, September 26 2022 12:01 pm

Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey executive director Jackie Cornell issued the following statement on the death of former Governor Jim Florio:

“Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Governor Jim Florio. During his time in office, Governor Florio supported access to reproductive health care for all New Jerseyans. In the years after holding our state’s highest office, he continued his advocacy for numerous issues of access and justice, including efforts to ensure reproductive health care services were adequately funded in our state’s budget. He leaves a legacy of deep commitment to our state’s residents, and decades of strong progressive leadership in the Garden State. We are profoundly grateful for the opportunity to have worked alongside him and will miss his often quiet tenacity to fight for a better New Jersey. Our thoughts go out to his family during this time.”
