(TRENTON) – Assemblywoman Mila Jasey, sponsor of New Jersey’s Freedom of Reproductive Choice Act, issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court overturning the landmark case Roe v. Wade:
“The day we have awaited with dread has arrived. Roe v. Wade, the cornerstone of our fundamental rights to privacy, autonomy over our bodies, and reproductive choice is no more.
“I have spent more than 50 years fighting for a woman’s right to choose. I will not stand idly by while illegal, back-alley abortions destroy women’s lives. We have earned this right and we will not let it be taken from us.”
