Planned Parenthood’s New Jersey Action Committee endorsed the Jon Corzine/Loretta Weinberg ticket today, calling the two “passionate advocates for women’s rights.”
The group praised the Democrats for supporting abortion rights, ensuring access to birth control drugs and emergency contraception and advocating comprehensive sex education.
Republican gubernatorial nominee Chris Christie is pro-life, though his selection of pro-choice lieutenant governor candidate Kim Guadagno kept the state’s largest pro-life group, New Jersey Right to Life, from endorsing him.
