The Reproductive Freedom Act

Everyone should be able to receive the care they need and plan their families without barriers, fears, or interference from others. Help us protect and expand everyone’s ability to receive reproductive health care, such as birth control and pregnancy-related care, including abortion, by supporting the Reproductive Freedom Act in New Jersey.

About the Reproductive Freedom Act (S3030/A4848)

Stand with Planned Parenthood to support the Reproductive Freedom Act in New Jersey.

When people can make decisions that are best for their lives, families thrive and we build communities where each of us can participate with dignity and equality.

Yet politicians in other states are racing to push reproductive health care out of reach. It is time for New Jersey to step up and ensure that everyone who needs care is able to access it with dignity and respect.

The Reproductive Freedom Act (S3030/A4848) supports our vision in three key ways:

  • The Reproductive Freedom Act explicitly ensures New Jerseyans have the right to make their own personal health decisions when it comes to birth control and pregnancy-related care, including abortion.
  • The Reproductive Freedom Act makes certain that financial barriers do not prevent anyone from making their own personal health decisions when it comes to birth control and pregnancy-related care, including abortion.
  • The Reproductive Freedom Act expands access to birth control and pregnancy-related care including abortion by breaking down medically-unnecessary restrictions that right now only serve to block access to care.

Join Planned Parenthood supporters today, and help pass the Reproductive Freedom Act to protect and expand access to birth control and pregnancy-care, including abortion, in New Jersey!

Contact Your Legislators on S49/A6260 and S413/A4698!

On Monday, January 10, both houses of the New Jersey State Legislature passed S49/A6260, a bill to protect the right to abortion, and S413/A4698, a bill to provide coverage for 12 months of birth control prescriptions all at one time.

Both bills are important steps forward in NJ to protect and increase access to the full range of reproductive health care.
