New Jersey

New Jersey has the potential to be a leading abortion access state for the nation. After working closely with the Thrive NJ coalition in 2020 and 2021 on a campaign that culminated in the passage of an abortion rights codification bill in January of 2022, NIRH will continue its work in the state to help ensure New Jersey remains a bold leader that expands access to the full range of reproductive health services, including abortion. NIRH will work with Thrive NJ, and specifically Cherry Hill Women’s Center, National Council of Jewish Women, Essex County, and Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey, to continue to build a strong, sustainable coalition, galvanize grassroots support, and further momentum in the legislature to address the remaining access issues left unaddressed by the rights codification bill.
