OUR TOP ISSUES IN 2024

Abortion Access

From improving access to care, to protecting patients and providers, PPAFNJ strives to make New Jersey a leader in reproductive freedom in a country that is increasingly hostile towards abortion care. The right to abortion is meaningless if people cannot access care, which is why PPAFNJ works to remove unnecessary barriers to providing or receiving abortion care.

Reproductive Health Funding

Access to affordable birth control, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV, and lifesaving cancer screenings changes lives - and saves the state money! Strong and diverse family planning funding streams are a key aspect of the health care safety net and benefit tens of thousands of people each year.

Anti-Abortion Centers

Anti-abortion centers (AACs), also known as crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs), are organizations that attempt to convince people to carry pregnancies to term. No one should be coerced, shamed, or manipulated when trying to access reproductive health care. There are 59 AACs in New Jersey, nearly three times as many facilities as Planned Parenthood operates.

Sex Education

The Planned Parenthood affiliates in New Jersey provide age-appropriate, comprehensive sex education programming to over 23,000 people each year. Sex education includes in-school programming, off-site services, and one-on-one support for teachers with curriculum and training on a range of topics from HIV/AIDs, birth control options, healthy relationships, LGBTQ inclusion, and other life skills.

Young People’s Rights

Young people deserve to have the information and support they need to protect their health and build their future — without shame or judgment. Young people are entitled to make age-appropriate decisions about their reproductive health, and are entitled to receive comprehensive sex education in NJ public schools.

Maternal Health

Quality maternal health care must be accessible to all people in New Jersey. This requires transformational change to address a system that has a long history of failing people of color and their babies. PPAFNJ is committed to supporting leaders in maternal health throughout the state so that mothers, babies, and families can thrive.

Young People Deserve
Access to Information

Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey is committed to ensuring all people receive the information and resources they need to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. Legislation that restricts Internet access would create barriers and eliminate access to information and the online communities that support people’s health and mental wellbeing.
