Gov. Chris Christie forcing NJ Planned Parenthoods out of business

If you elect a strong social and fiscal conservative to office, Planned Parenthood’s abortions-for-money scheme is going to fall apart in the face of the reforms that newly-elected official puts into effect, especially if that official stand true to their principles, as Catholic Governor Chris Christie has done in NJ:

After the New Jersey state Senate defeated an attempt to override the decision of Gov. Chris Christie to cut off state taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood abortion businesses, the first facility run by the national abortion giant is closing.
[…] PP-SNJ stands to lose as much as $160,000 in taxpayer funds because of Christie’s decision and the upholding of his veto. With the closing of the Cherry Hill center, Planned Parenthood customers seeking abortions or other “services” must go to PP centers in Camden, Bellmawr, and Edgewater Park. [LifeNews]
Bravo, Gov. Christie. This is what I call a good start.

    abortion is a very heart wrenching choice I cantimagine being a woman and having to make such a choice.However the poor and underprivileged are the ones most affected.I suggest every child that is born into poverty be adopted by all the pro lifeeveangelical zelots Remember now a lot of them will be black hispanic poor white etc.And now that you are decimating the teachers and other forms of learning isitutions and cut back on college help it will have to come out of your pockets Oh yea and health care costs to.Food is being manipulated by wall street fuel Dont forget all those fancy gadgets kids love now adays plus a car at graduation.And pray to your god they dint get in trouble with the law.Once in the system they dont let go easy The way you people shout your love for your god he will demand that you take these children in Or is that by your choice of convenience.The white anglo saxon bigots of this country are going to be the minority in the future Do you seriously think the european countrys would want you back You are sellfish self involved animals Like the saying goes Americans were never ready for independance.It took 200 yrs to totally screw the pooch.By the way christie is a over indulgent slob.What that man eats a day could feed a family of 4.He doesnt have a medical problem. He.s just a pig

    Gov. Christie, thanks for STANDING UP GOD Bless you

  • Elaine

    And to think there were people complaining at this time last year that he wasn’t pro-life enough. Anyone care to name another public official who has done this?

  • Ms Mary Schwaner

      I think I spoke too soon…

        I’d like to see the claims about Christie’s personal financial donations to PP substantiated.

        • John

          Christie gladly advertised his personal donations to Planned Parenthood when he ran for county office in the 1990’s in his native Morris County, NJ. It’s a fact.

          • Thomas Peters

            John – if it is, please provide a link to this fact. I’ve searched and can’t find the evidence. I’m not saying it doesn’t exist, I’m saying it would be helpful if someone provided proof. Thanks!

            there was a point in time that one could choose to point to if one were so inclined, and say “look, tim has only been prolife for one minute” we all come around in our own time. even if (and thats a huge if) these claims could be substantiated, that says nothing of this David who now stands before goliath and watches his fall. God keep this man, and bless him, all the days of his life.

            The point here is that to label Christie as “pro-life” and a “Catholic Governor” are dilutions of the terms, based on the past public record and the current situation concerning Christie’s multiple pro-abort appointments to high office in NJ, in addition to Christie’s recent (2009) vocal support of Roe v. Wade and his personal expression of commitment to the bankrupt US Supreme Court decision in his 2009 interview with National Public Radio (NPR). His recent dispute with Planned Parenthood is a smokescreen clouding over all the other pro-abort and family unfriendly policies he is pursuing, including his support for Obamacare and his recent appointment of a supporter of gay marriage to the state human rights commission.

            I have an mp3 copy of a 2009 political ad which includes Christie’s comments of support for the Roe decision and I will email it to whoever wants it.

            Here is the quote from the 2009 NPR interview: Christie: “As governor of New Jersey I would enforce the law as it stands in the country now which is Roe v. Wade is the law of the land and you have to enforce the law if you’re governor and I would.”

            What “prolife” or “strong social conservative” or “Catholic” governor would ever say such a thing?

            Here is a copy of a Newark Star Ledger article about Christie and his the support of Planned Parenthood:

            “Star-Ledger, The (Newark, NJ)

            September 30, 1994

            Article Text:

            The national debate over family values has been dragged into the Morris County freeholder race, with Democrats demanding that Republican incumbents “put their money where their mouth is” by restoring an annual donation to Planned Parenthood of Greater Northern New Jersey.

            “If Republicans really mean what they say, let’s see them return funding to this non-profit agency,” said Robert Grant, a Democratic candidate for freeholder who said the GOP-dominated freeholder board should rethink the Planned Parenthood issue during budget reviews this fall.

            Once the center of an abortion controversy in the late 1980s, Planned Parenthood found its $35,000 annual contribution from the Morris freeholders eliminated in 1989, leaving it short of funding necessary to its health care program for indigent women. Grant argued that Planned Parenthood’s abortion counseling is just a small part of an overall program that concentrates on family planning and steers troubled young mothers and their infants away from lives of dependence on welfare. “How can you say you support the family integrity and not deal with the hard issues that families must deal with? It’s part of the Republican hypocrisy,” said Daniel Grant, Robert Grant’s running mate and brother.

            He contended that Planned Parenthood provides crucial aid to indigent families in the early stages of their development.

            “If ‘Father Knows Best’ typified the American family, I could understand the Republican position, but it’s just not that easy. You can’t be pro-family and not be willing to deal with the problems real families face,” he added.

            But the Republicans were quick to respond.

            “I support Planned Parenthood privately with my personal contribution and that should be the goal of any such agency, to find private donations,” said GOP freeholder candidate Chris Christie.

            “It’s also no secret that I am pro-choice … But you have to examine all the agencies needing county donations and prioritize them. I would consider all groups looking for funding, but there is a limit and we have to pick and choose,” he added.

            Joan Bramhall, a Republican freeholder running for re-election, said the county cannot afford to donate any more money.

            “I am pro-choice,” she said. “However, with county tightening its belt while still trying to provide and maintain all of its quality services, I’d have to say no.”

            I disagree strongly with Roe v. Wade, but don’t find it unusual that a candidate for Governor would state that he would enforce a law even if he disagreed with the law. That doesn’t mean he isn’t pro-life.

            The article you bring up, though, comes from 1994. Back then Chris Christie and I had two things in common: We were both fat. And we were pro-choice. Today, we are both pro-life. But we’re still fat. Still got work to do…

            But this charge that Christie is not pro-life is bogus. We need to welcome converts. Not reject them.

            Chris Christie came clean about what changed his mind. From his own campaign website in 2009, he said: “I am pro-life. Hearing the strong heartbeat of my unborn daughter 14 years ago at 13 weeks gestation had a profound effect on me and my beliefs. The life of every human being is precious. We must work to reduce abortions in New Jersey through laws such as parental notification, a 24-hour waiting period and a ban on partial-birth abortion.” Source: Campaign website,, “Issues” Jul 21, 2009

            Also, pro-life stalwart Chris Smith strongly supported Christie:

            “The race for the Republican gubernatorial nomination moved to the negative side yesterday when a comparison mailer paid for by Steve Lonegan’s campaign criticized rival Chris Christie for being the “pro-choice candidate.” Christie has made it clear that he is pro-life, and backed it up with an early endorsement from U.S. Rep. Christopher Smith, who has been New Jersey’s leading pro-life Republican for nearly thirty years. Smith rarely endorses in statewide Republican primaries, and observers who say that he would not have backed a candidate who doesn’t share his pro-life position are accurate.”
