Abortion New Jersey’s Choice
The constitutional right to abortion has been overturned, but the Garden State remains committed to reproductive rights.
Abortion remains very much legal in New Jersey. In January of this year, the state passed the Freedom of Reproductive Choice act, enshrining the right to an abortion in state law. Then, in June, in response to Dobbs, the legislature passed two additional acts, one protecting the privacy of both abortion providers and out-of-state patients and another protecting those providers and patients from extradition to, and possible prosecution in, states in which abortion is illegal or seriously curtailed.
