New Jersey legislators considered a proposal to allow midwives, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants to perform abortions but that push came to a halt when public opposition grew too loud to ignore.
Then along came Gov. Phil Murphy, a pro-abortion politician, who went to the state medical board and got the governor-appointed members to change regulations to allow it.
Gregory Quinlan of the Center for Garden State Families says the same board also dropped health and safety standards. That means, he warns, that abortions can now be performed in filthy clinics with dirty equipment.
“This is wrong on a thousand levels,” he tells American Family News. “It did not make abortion safe or more accessible. It made it more dangerous and deadly.”
Not only did Gov. Murphy go around the legislature to make abortions more dangerous, Quinlan says Americans should know the governor wants to be their U.S. president one day.
