Background of legislation:
On Thursday, June 23rd, 2016, NJ Assembly Dems continually tried to censor the truth about Planned Parenthood. This occurred when I attempted to testify before the Assembly budget committee to tell them why Planned Parenthood should not be funded by taxpayers. I was repeatedly and rudely shouted at and gaveled down by the Chair, Asm. Gary Schaer, and only given about 1 minute and a half to provide remarks while PP officials were allowed to provide testimony uninterrupted and were even praised and thanked by the Chair. Our comments did not make it into the News coverage even though our written remarks were provided to the press.
