Statements about Women

Says Cory Booker "supports late-term and partial-birth abortion and opposes safety regulations."

"People want the minimum wage, they want marriage equality, they want women’s health care. There’s issues that actually that really do matter, social issues that matter to the people of this state. So I know Barbara would support those issues, I know the governor hasn’t. You’ve seen the actions he’s taken on them."

Says Rep. Jon Runyan "voted to redefine rape."

"When (Joe Kyrillos) had an opportunity to vote for women in terms of their health care, not once, not twice, but six times, he voted against women’s health care in our state."

"The first (state) budget that came out of our Republican leadership slashed funding to Planned Parenthood...It resulted in the reduction of hours, the elimination of days, elimination of access to women in my city and all over my state."

Says "in our gun laws we’re allowing domestic abusers to sidestep this ban on getting a gun. The loophole allows a convicted abuser to walk into a gun show and walk out with a gun, no questions asked."

Says there have been "well over" 54 million abortions since 1973.

"A clear majority of Americans support removing the cost-sharing requirement for prescription contraceptive coverage."

Says a 1915 referendum on women’s right to vote "went down in New Jersey. And it took the Legislature to pass it."

Says six of the state’s 58 family planning centers had to close because of Gov. Chris Christie’s budget cuts.
