In 2010, Governor Chris Christie eliminated a state budget line that allocated $7.45 million for basic, preventive reproductive health care services. These services included life-saving cancer screenings, birth control, prevention and treatment of STDs including HIV/AIDS, and other health screenings. This funding was not used for abortion services. In 2009, this funding helped support services for more than 136,000 patients.

In 2012, New Jersey’s family planning providers saw at least 33,000 fewer patients compared with 2009—a 24% drop in patients served. Some patients may have lost services immediately because their health center closed and they did not have access to other providers. Others have experienced longer wait times for appointments or have had to pay more out of pocket.
