Expanding Abortion Access for All in New Jersey (2022)

October 5, 2022

When the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade — the landmark decision recognizing the constitutional right to abortion — it stripped millions of people across the country of their  fundamental human right to reproductive autonomy and emboldened anti-abortion politicians across the country to go even further.

While abortion is still legal in New Jersey, many people cannot access the reproductive care they need because New Jersey lawmakers have not addressed the barriers that push care out of reach for too many in our state, especially communities of color, immigrants, LGBTQ+ communities, and people who are low-income.

To begin dismantling these barriers, New Jersey lawmakers must take immediate action to expand access to abortion in our state by passing the Reproductive Equity Act (REA).
