New Jersey Will Spend $5 Million to Train Abortionists to Kill Babies

Instead of supporting mothers and babies in need, New Jersey leaders are dumping huge amounts of resources into expanding the billion-dollar abortion industry this winter.

On Friday, state Attorney General Matthew Platkin announced a new $5 million taxpayer-funded grant to “expand the pool of abortion providers” in New Jersey. The Democrat governors of California and New York also created abortion training grants this year.

The money, which Gov. Phil Murphy budgeted for 2023, will be used to train more students and medical workers to become abortionists. Earlier this year, the Murphy administration began allowing midwives, advanced practice nurses and physician assistants to perform abortions as well as doctors.

Platkin said Rutgers University will receive the grant money to create and implement the new “New Jersey Reproductive Training and Education Initiative.”

“As other states shut down access to abortion care following the Dobbs ruling, we are taking steps to ensure our state has a sufficient number of health professionals to provide these important services,” Platkin said in a statement. “New Jersey is committed to supporting and defending the right to choose and we will continue working to facilitate access to abortion services for those who seek them.”

However, tens of thousands of doctors confirm that abortions are not health care, and unborn babies are second patients in every pregnancy.

New Jersey has one of the highest abortion rates in the country and some of the most permissive pro-abortion laws. It forces taxpayers to fund elective abortions and soon will force private health insurance plans to cover the killing practice, too. According to government statistics, more than 22,000 unborn babies are aborted every year.

Several states now allow nurse practitioners and midwives to abort unborn babies. A 2013 California study found that abortions done by non-physicians were twice as likely to have complications as those done by licensed physicians.

Research indicates most doctors are unwilling to abort unborn babies, and the number of abortionists is dwindling.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, in 1982, there were 2,918 abortion doctors practicing in America, but by 2011, there were only 1,720. A number of abortion clinics have closed in the past few years because abortionists retired and no one was willing to take their places, according to a 2016 Bloomberg study.
