State of New Jersey secondary Archives: on Abortion


Josh Gottheimer: Fight any attempt to get between a woman and her doctor

I unequivocally support women's reproductive rights and will fight any attempt to get between a woman and her doctor when it comes to making personal healthcare choices. I also believe women should have access to affordable health care services around the country.

We should also invest in stem cell research and ensure that the National Institutes of Health continue to fund ground-breaking research in cancer, autism, and other diseases.

Murray Sabrin: Human life begins at conception

Question topic: Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Sabrin: Strongly Agree

Question topic: Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?

Sabrin: We should all work to create a cultural shift in this country that this dreadful procedure would only be acceptable to be used in the extraordinary circumstance to protect the life of the mother. As a US Senator I would sponsor and vote for legislation to protect and promote life and would oppose anti-life justices to the US Supreme Court.

Cory Booker: No restrictions before viability; exceptions after viability

Cory Booker supports a woman's right to choose, according to his campaign website. But to hear a conservative group's ad tell it, Booker supports much more than choice.

The American Commitment Action Fund, a conservative PAC behind the BookerFAIL website, funded a new ad that claims Booker condones abortion at any stage of pregnancy and without restrictions. "He supports late-term and partial-birth abortion and opposes safety regulations," the ad states.

We checked with the Booker campaign. "We can all agree that we want to prevent unintended pregnancies, and therefore the need for abortion," a spokesman said. "Mayor Booker supports Roe v Wade, which allows women the right to choose up to the point of viability."

As for late-term and partial-birth abortions? "Cory Booker does not oppose restrictions on post-viability abortions if exceptions are made for the health and the life of the mother," the spokesman said.
