The national group wants one abortion site operating in each of its 85 regions or affiliates by the end of 2013, David said. New Jersey has five affiliates, and two operate abortion clinics: The Central Jersey affiliate, at its Shrewsbury center in Monmouth County; and the Mercer County affiliate, at its Trenton and Hamilton facilities. That could mean three more abortion sites in the state, unless the affiliates convince the national office more are not needed.
NARAL's 2011 "Who Decides?" Report gives our nation a "D" with regards to abortion legislation. The report is dedicated to Janet Napolitano who vetoed prolife legislation when she was Arizona's governor. Too bad for NARAL, she didn't stay governor.
After Napolitano was nominated to serve as President Barack Obama's secretary of Homeland Security, her successor, anti-choice Jan Brewer (R), immediately released the flood of anti-choice legislation that Sec. Napolitano had held off. In just under two years in office, Gov. Brewer has managed to sign eight anti-choice bills.
