Many of you know that the dignity of life is under attack at the local, state and federal level.  We need to stay informed of the issues so that we can let our legislators know our views on the issues that concern us the most.  Sadly to say, not everyone in a position of authority governs with respect for human life.  Rather, we keep hearing these days about "individual" rights that trample on the sacredness of the rights of others.  In many cases, new laws are being generated that promote and encourage immoral and inhumane behaviors that go against nature, God, and centuries of laws designed to protect society.  Not only issues of the sanctity of life, this also includes matters that affect us all: over-regulation and under-regulation in healthcare, banking and finances, FDA regulations, protecting the environment and food supply, and more.

Sadly to say, politics is a complicated issue that frequently relies on greased wheels, greed, and corruption; and it is our duty as citizens to not turn a blind eye but speak out against injustices that harm the vulnerable, threaten to divide our citizens and destroy the peace and harmony our forefathers fought for.  

The American dream is dissipating.  Won't you speak up and let your legislators know how you feel?

On June 27, both the Senate and Assembly voted in favor of A3492/S2277 and A1963/S1017 to use your hard earned tax dollars to fund Planned Parenthood.  Click here to see how your State Senator and two Assembly members voted, then please take the action listed below:   

Action Needed:  

1.  If your legislators voted in favor of these bills, call them to express your outrage and tell them you expect them to vote No on any attempt to override a veto.  Don't forget to thank your legislators if they voted No on these bills.  If possible, please post messages on your legislators' social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook.

2.  Please call and email Governor Christie at 609-292-6000 and thank him for vetoing these bills in the past and urge him to do so again.    

You can send a prewritten email message to the Governor from this link on the Legislation page of (the NJRTL) website HERE.   It's the third item on the page.  Thank you. 

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.

Take action at the third item on this page.  

News on Whole Women's Health v. Hellerstedt Supreme Court Decision

As you know, the U.S. Supreme Court disappointingly issued a 5-3 decision on Monday, June 27th striking down the Texas abortion law that required that abortion clinics be brought up to the same standards as ambulatory care facilities and the abortion doctors have hospital admitting privileges within 30 miles of the abortion clinic. Please see the link to the article below which explains that even though the US Supreme Ct struck down the TX abortion safety regulation law today, the 20 week abortion ban is still in effect! The abortion extremists cannot win because science is on our side!


We will be sure to keep you updated on this and other pro-life matters.  Thank you for your support of our work!
