State Legislation – Take Action Immediately!
Pro-Abortion Democrat State Legislators have once again introduced bills to use taxpayer dollars to fund Planned Parenthood despite the fact that Governor Christie has vetoed similar measures four times.

Suggested Message: I don’t want my hard earned tax dollars used to fund Planned Parenthood. Please vote No on A4171/S2824 and A4172/S2825. Contrary to false claims by Planned Parenthood, women are receiving legitimate health care at the 100+ Federally Qualified Health Centers in NJ. I will be monitoring how you vote on this matter and your vote will influence my vote this November. Thank you.
2. Call and email Governor Christie immediately. Thank him for vetoing previous bills and urge him to please veto A4171/S2824 and A4172/S2825 if these bills reach his desk.
Phone number for Governor Christie: 609 292 6000.
