(Basking Ridge, NJ) “If Tom Kean Jr. is elected and his party takes back control of Congress, they have made clear they will try to pass a nationwide abortion ban that will overturn our laws in New Jersey.
Kean’s last vote in the New Jersey State Senate was to reject the codification of Roe at the state level. Kean has one last chance now to prove to New Jersey’s women that he recognizes their full and equal rights — by pledging to support federal legislation restoring the settled law the Supreme Court shredded today. But as on every other issue, Kean will likely choose silence.
We cannot go back to a time in America when women and doctors were treated as criminals or let our daughters grow up with fewer rights than their mothers and grandmothers. We have to elect a Congress that will protect a woman’s right to choose.”
