Statement from Jackie Cornell, Executive Director, Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey:

"Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Lieutenant Governor Sheila Oliver.

Throughout her career, Lieutenant Governor Oliver was a steadfast champion for women and girls. During her time serving in the New Jersey State Assembly, including her term as Assembly Speaker, Lieutenant Governor Oliver fiercely advocated for reproductive health care access and state-level funding to support patients and services. Her commitment to reproductive health was unrelenting, as she pushed to restore family planning funding that was cut during the eight years of the Christie Administration.

She leaves a trailblazing legacy of shattered glass ceilings in our state. We are grateful for the opportunity to have worked with her, and will miss her example of steady and kind leadership and commitment to uplifting communities.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to her family, staff and the many folks throughout the state that are grieving today."
