Christie marks Roe v Wade at anti-abortion rally

    In one of many rallies across the nation today, NJ Gov. Chris Christie will speak out against abortion today from the Statehouse steps to mark the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

     

    The Republican governor has cut $7.5 million from the state’s family planning budget, including 58 clinics for women’s reproductive health, the Associated Press reports.

    Christie reportedly supported abortion rights until he heard the heartbeat of his unborn daughter 15 years ago.
