N.J. Gov. Christie Blocks Abortion Clinic Funding

Ad Feedback

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has vetoed another attempt to restore funding for Planned Parenthood in his state.

The New Jersey Senate passed a measure to restore the $7.5 million in funding, despite the state struggling with its budget.

Christie, a Republican, rejected the legislation June 30, saying New Jersey doesn't have the money. Two Planed Parenthood clinics shut down after he vetoed a similar measure last year.

"We applaud Gov. Christie for once again standing up for the integrity of New Jersey taxpayers and against the political maneuverings of those who use women's health as an excuse to further a misguided ideological agenda," New Jersey Right to Life president Marie Tasy said in response.

"It is unfathomable that anyone who truly cares about women's health and their well being would continue to push funding of these clinics," she added.

Democrats do not have enough votes to override Christie's veto.
