New Jersey Bill Regarding Abortion and Incarcerated Pregnant People (A 145)
This law was last updated on Jan 12, 2018
A 145 would require incarcerated pregnant people seeking an abortion to cover the cost of the procedure themselves.
Inmates in New Jersey are currently only assessed a nominal fee for medical care and procedures, including abortions. This bill would permit a county to enact an ordinance or resolution requiring an inmate to cover all lawful costs associated with any abortion not deemed necessary to save the life of the pregnant person.
Identical to A 111, which failed to pass during the 2016-2017 legislative session.
