NJ Senator Loretta Weinberg pushes for restoration of family planning funding

NEW JERSEY STATE Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg (D-Bergen) and Assemblyman Vincent Mazzeo (D-Atlantic) announced their fight to restore $7.5 million in this year’s state budget for family planning services that Governor Chris Christie eliminated in 2010. At a news conference at the Planned Parenthood Trenton Health Center, Loretta said, “The question I have to raise is why are we still fighting over this? Why is women’s health and women’s access to reproductive care still a battle? A battle in this state, in this blue, progressive New Jersey, as well as in the nation?”
