New Jersey had a long standing budget line dedicating money to critical womens’ health care services. For instance, in 2009, women’s health care was funded at $7.4 million, but since Gov. Christie took office that money has been eliminated, despite Democratic efforts to restore it.
The cut has led to education programs being scrapped, staff hours reduced and even the closing of some women’s health clinics in the state.
