TRENTON, N.J. – Assembly Republican Leader John DiMaio rejected Gov. Phil Murphy’s push today to have abortions covered by insurance and taxpayers after signing legislation allowing full term abortions in January.
“First of all, allowing abortions up until birth is a heinous stance to take. Now, Murphy is hastily pushing legislation that was rejected by members of his own party last year because it was too extreme,” said DiMaio (R-Warren). “And he wants taxpayers to foot the bill for that very legislation. If the U.S. Supreme Court hands down a decision it will have no impact on New Jersey. Murphy is fighting windmills.”
