Pro-life champion Chris Smith (R-NJ) gave an exclusive interview to Dr. Susan Berry of Breitbart News in which  he harshly criticized New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy for signing the “Freedom of Reproductive Choice Act,” a bill that allows abortion up until birth and allows non-physicians to perform abortions.

No surprise that Gov. Murphy was joined at the signing ceremonies by Alexis McGill Johnson, the CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

 “I mean, this is an outrageous piece of legislation,” Smith told Dr. Berry. “It totally dehumanizes unborn children and makes them persona non grata. It will lead to even more abortions going forward”:

As the primary sponsor in the House of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, legislation that seeks to ban abortions once an unborn child can experience pain, Smith said, “We know about the pain and the suffering as that dismemberment abortion … imposes horrific pain on a baby, on that little girl, that little boy.”

Murphy, he said, “has just given the total legal green light to dismember children and chemically poison children.”

“There’s a great number of scientists that are recognizing after prenatal surgeries, that, even at age 15 weeks, they make sure they anesthetize the baby to assist the baby,” he said, noting, however, that abortionists “have absolutely no compassion for the baby.”

“I mean, this is a human rights abuse,” Smith said, a “no-limits piece of legislation” will lead to many children “dying a painful death.”

Smith pointed out that during the height of the pandemic,  Gov. Murphy “ordered that all the abortion clinics get to stay open. But necessary surgeries, including for cancer and other work were delayed or put off limits during the worst of the COVID crisis. What a revelation of priorities that was.”

With the 49th anniversary of Roe v. Wade just four days away, Smith told Berry that the pro-life movement is “all about loving” both babies and their mothers, as well as a focus on the “reconciliation process.”

“We want to help that individual woman get back on her feet,” he said. Smith added

“We want to stop the deed, the lethal deed, the irreversible deed, before it happens. And this governor not only pays for it through state Medicaid, but also now, has authorized, made legal, no matter what the Supreme Court does, abortion on demand right until birth.”
