The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is a bill to protect the lives of babies born during or after an abortion attempt. It insists that doctors must provide the same care as he/she would for any other child born at that same gestational age if an abortion had not been attempted. It also requires the newborn to be immediately transferred to a hospital, thus ensuring the baby is provided with appropriate neonatal care outside the influence of the provider who was paid to end his/her life.

New Jersey has no restrictions on abortion, so it is legal to abort an unborn baby past 20 weeks of life. Please take this opportunity to send a letter to your two Assembly Members and your State Senator asking them to support and co-sponsor the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, A-3452/S-2026. This bill would ban abortion past 20 weeks (5 months) in NJ. You can find a copy of the letter
