from Marie Tasy,Executive Director
New Jersey Right to Life 

Late yesterday, Legislative leaders in the Assembly added ACR119/SCR78 to the Assembly Board List for Monday's (Dec 19) voting session. This Resolution commemorates women's access to abortion (reproductive health care) and the Anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision. You can send a prewritten email to your two assembly members below by clicking on the link below that says, "Take Action." Because the vote is scheduled for Monday, we are also asking that you also tweet your Legislators if you have a twitter account and Post messages on the Facebook pages urging them to Vote No on ACR/119/SCR78. 

 We have posted a message on the NJRTL Facebook page which you are welcome to share with you pro-life friends and family who have Facebook accounts.

Background on ACR119/SCR78

This Resolution was introduced at the request of Pro-Abortion Groups, which include NOW and Planned Parenthood. On March 7, the Assembly Human Services Committee and the Senate Health Committee scheduled the above resolution for Committee hearings. The word, "Celebrate" was deleted from the Resolution by the Assembly Sponsor, Asw. Valerie Vanieri-Huttle, after hearing testimony from post abortive women and pro-life leaders who pointed out how insensitive and wrong-headed this resolution truly was.

The NJ Senate approved this Resolution on March 14, 2016 by a slim margin of 22-6, with 12 Senators not voting. The Assembly amended the bill to strike the word "celebrate." In order for this resolution to pass, the Assembly will have to vote on this resolution with the amendments and then send it back to the NJ Senate for concurrence. They amended it a second time this past week to honor the "Annual" Anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision. At this time, we are asking you to contact your two Assembly members and urge them to vote No on ACR119.
