Statements on the Reproductive Freedom Act

By David Wildstein, January 10 2022 3:35 pm

FORMER SENATE MAJORITY LEADER LORETTA WEINBERG
“With a woman’s right to choose under Roe v. Wade under attack in the U.S. Supreme Court, it is critical that we enact legislation rooted in the New Jersey Constitution that clearly and unequivocally protects freedom of reproductive choice, including the right to access contraception, the right to terminate a pregnancy, and the right to carry a pregnancy to term.”

SENATE PRESIDENT STEVE SWEENEY
“January 22nd is the 49th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. By signing S49 before that date, the Governor can send a message to the nation that in New Jersey, a woman’s right to choose is, and will remain, a fundamental right.  I am proud to join Senator Weinberg in fighting for the votes needed to ensure that the Freedom of Reproductive Choice Act becomes law.”

STATE SENATOR LINDA GREEENSTEIN
“The Freedom of Reproductive Choice Act is a comprehensive bill that guarantees women will continue to have the right to make their own personal decisions on their reproductive care, regardless of how the U.S. Supreme Court rules.  We need to pass this legislation and get it signed into law.”
