Override Vote Scheduled Thursday, June 29th to fund Planned Parenthood Abortion Business. Take Immediate Action!





from Marie Tasy, Executive Director
New Jersey Right to Life


Both Houses of the Legislature are planning to vote this Thursday, June 29th to override Governor Christie's veto of A3492, a 2017 budget supplemental appropriation bill that will provide $7.453M in taxpayer funds to Planned Parenthood. The media is spreading Planned Parenthood's shameful propaganda and lies and writing editorials imploring legislators to vote to override Governor Christie's veto and to do it for our "our wives, daughters and sisters."

IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED:

Call and Email your two Assembly members and State Senator asap. Please do both: Call AND email them.

Message for two Assembly members and State Senator:
Vote No to override Governor Christie's veto of A3492. I do not want my tax dollars used to fund Planned Parenthood. The Federally Qualified Health Centers are meeting the health care needs of NJ women. I am watching how you vote and will remember how you vote on this matter when I go to the polls on November, 7, 2017.

Background: 

Planned Parenthood is claiming that STDs went up in NJ and cases of breast and cervical cancer went up as well since their funding has been cut. They are using this as a reason that they should be funded.

The reality: I attended two Budget Committee hearings this spring where the NJ Commissioner of Health testified both times that STDS have gone up nationally and that although NJ's has gone up in recent years as has the national rate, it has one of the lowest increases in the nation. in addition, the Director of Planned Parenthood, Casey Olesko was quoted in a recent South Jersey news article admitting that there is "no causal link" between the spike in diseases and the closing of health centers in the state," yet she and her minions continue to make these unfounded claims. Planned Parenthood does not do mammograms, a fact they had to admit after being exposed for lying about it, but they continue to try to confuse people into believing that they do.

They are also using a biased poll just released from Rutgers Eagleton and the Health Care Quality Institute which they said shows 78% of NJ voters support federal and state funding of Planned Parenthood.


The reality: The poll used something called a "List2" for the poll. The methodology included contacting people by text which directed them to the poll on-line, which certainly doesn't seem to be a "random sampling."

The truth of the matter is that Planned Parenthood has proved time and time again they are a shameless organization that will do or say anything to protect their bottom line.

Please pass this post on to pro-life friends and family and urge them to take the suggested action above immediately! Time is of the essence.
