At the State House on Thursday, liberal Republican State Senator Jennifer Beck voted for every piece of legislation she could to help assist Planned Parenthood, the number one provider of abortions in America. In its 2014 Annual Report, Planned Parenthood bragged that it had performed 324,000 abortions that year. It's annual revenue is $1.3 billion -- with at least $530 million of that coming from government funding.
S-1017 expands Planned Parenthood's government subsidized services to a greater portion of the population -- in this case "individuals with incomes up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level."
Led by Senator Steve Oroho (R-Sussex, Warren, Morris), most Republicans opposed the bill. Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth) was the only Republican to support the bill.
S-2277 spends more of your tax dollars on a "FY 2016 supplemental appropriation to the Department of Health for $7,453,000 for family planning services." That's $7.4 Million in extra spending.
Again, led by Senator Oroho, every Republican opposed the bill -- except for Senator Jennifer Beck. She voted for it.
One of those looking on while Senator Beck did this was Americans for Prosperity (AFP) Communications Director Mike Proto. Mike himself is Pro-Life and must have been embarrassed by AFP's support of Senator Beck.
NJ 101.5 impresario Bill Spadea ran for Congress as a Pro-Life candidate. We wonder if he will ask Senator Beck about her votes when he next has her on his talk radio show.
State Senator Mike Doherty is a Beck cheer-leader. Doherty also claims to be Pro-Life. Perhaps Doherty can convince Senator Beck to stop spending money to support the nation's number one abortion provider. That is a cost savings that can definitely be made.
