TRENTON, NJ — Today, the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners recommended the adoption of rules that will improve access to abortion, including updating the removal of some unnecessary restrictions and updating regulations to remove barriers to essential, quality rerproductive health care. In response, Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey Vice President of Public Affairs Kaitlyn Wojtowicz issued the following statement:

“Planned Parenthood is committed to providing safe, affordable and timely reproductive health care to all New Jerseyans — because our patients are always our top priority. Too many New Jerseyans face barriers to essential reproductive health care services, including abortion. We applaud the Board of Medical Examiners (BME) for taking another step forward to remove unnecessary, antiquated abortion restrictions.

“Removing these unnecessary barriers will expand access to abortion care. As legal abortion faces impending threats, it is more important now than ever before for New Jersey policymakers to ensure that everyone seeking abortion in our state continue to have access to the highest quality reproductive health care. New Jerseyans deserve and demand access to the care they need so they can plan their families without barriers, fear, or interference from others. Today’s action brings us closer to achieving that goal.”

Further information from the Board of Medical Examiners is available here.
