During presser right now, Gov. Phil Murphy repeats message to women and young girls advocating for change, LGB people, and "our transgender friends who have been excluded from this discourse":

"Your body belongs to you." https://twitter.com/NPR/status/1312030607141228544
People give Jersey a bad rap. I happen to like Jersey. The Pine Barrens?

Come on. It's gorgeous.
Murphy says that New Jersey will join Oregon, Washington, New York, California, and Delaware in having strong laws protecting right to birth control and abortion.

Calls Oregon the gold standard.
First Lady Murphy says that in NJ, Black women are 7 times more likely to die in childbirth than white women. Says that they are committing to changing that.

ACLU NJ Director: NJ committed to ensuring that everyone regardless of income level, gender identity, or immigrant status can access birth control without copay and abortion covered by private insurance.

Not enough to say people can make their own choices. They need access!
New Jersey made the right choice bouncing Chris Christie out of there. Phil Murphy seems like a righteous dude.

Ends by saying that they're on the clock given the SCOTUS nomination and then says once more for good measure, Your body belongs to you.

Ok. New Jersey. Ok. Ok. 🙌🏾
