Right to Life PAC backs DeCroce

By Nikita Biryukov, April 23 2021 1:40 pm

The state’s largest pro-life group endorsed Assemblywoman BettyLou DeCroce (R-Parsippany-Troy Hills) Friday.

“Assemblywoman DeCroce has been a steadfast defender of the unborn and is one of the strongest pro-life voices in our state,” New Jersey Right to Life PAC Executive Director Marie Tasy said. “BettyLou isn’t afraid of a fight and she never compromises her values. I urge all pro-life voters to return her to the State Assembly this year.”

The group cited her opposition to the Reproductive Freedom Act, which would codify abortion protections in state case law, and her co-sponsorship of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would bar abortions after 20 weeks.

DeCroce faces a complicated path to re-election. She has organizational lines in the Passaic and Essex County portions of the 26th district, but Morris Republicans backed Christian Barranco instead. The majority of GOP primary votes come out of Morris, where Assemblyman Jay Webber (R-Morris Plains) also has the line.

“As a mother, and a grandmother, I know firsthand that every life is precious and every baby is a gift from God,” DeCroce said. “The radical, pro-abortion movement sweeping the country – and being led by Governor Murphy and the radical liberals in Trenton – is out of control. Now, more than ever, we need people willing to stand up and stop this madness. I am proud to call myself pro-life and honored to have earned this endorsement.”
