New Jersey Democrat leaders want their state to strip away all rights and protections from unborn babies with a state constitutional amendment on abortion.

Lawmakers have not made the details of their proposed amendment public yet, but the New Jersey Globe described it as an attempt to “enshrine abortion as a basic human right” in the New Jersey Constitution.

According to the report, Democrats want to put the amendment on the November 2023 election ballot for voters’ approval. To amend the constitution, the language must pass the state legislature by a simple majority in two consecutive sessions and then receive approval from a majority of voters on the state-wide ballot.

Lawmakers may introduce the amendment as early as next week, and they plan to vote on it before the end of the year, the Globe reports.

Earlier this year, New Jersey Right to Life warned voters about how extreme state Democrat leaders are on abortion. The pro-life group pointed to a recent USA Today editorial by Gov. Phil Murphy and Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver that admits they support late-term abortions and oppose parental consent for minors.

ACTION ALERT: Contact New Jersey lawmakers and urge them to vote NO on the pro-abortion amendment.

“They don’t care that the people of NJ don’t support such an extreme edict!” the pro-life organization responded.

New Jersey already has the highest abortion rate in the country and some of the most permissive abortion laws.

Polls consistently show that a strong majority of Americans support legal protections for unborn babies after the first trimester, parental consent for minors and other limits.

A recent Harvard poll found 72 percent of Americans, including 75 percent of women, oppose abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Another Marist poll in January similarly found 71 percent of Americans oppose abortion after the first three months of pregnancy.

Even in Democrat strongholds like California, polls show opposition to unrestricted abortions through all nine months of pregnancy. For example, a Rasmussen poll in August found only 13 percent of California voters think abortions should be legal up to birth.

However, three states, California, Vermont and Michigan, passed pro-abortion amendments to their constitutions in November. Pro-life leaders warned that the amendments will void restrictions on late-term abortions and parental consent laws, and allow unborn babies to be killed for any reason through all nine months of pregnancy.

Pro-abortion activists dumped tens of millions of dollars into the states, funding massive misinformation campaigns that deceived voters about just how radical the amendments were.

ACTION ALERT: Contact New Jersey lawmakers and urge them to vote NO on the pro-abortion amendment.
