Radical Abortion Legislation Passed in New Jersey

Timothy Plan Founder Art Ally—Abortion Will Not Be Funded by the Faithful

January 11, 2021

ORLANDO, Fla.— Pro-life leaders protested a radical abortion bill introduced in the New Jersey legislature that would allow abortion for any reason throughout all nine months of pregnancy, repeal all existing restrictions on abortion and force taxpayers to fully fund the procedure.

According to the bill the legislation (S3030/A4848) “specifies that a fertilized egg, embryo or fetus may not be understood to have independent rights under any of the laws of this State.”

Gov. Phil Murphy (D) is supporting this legislation. When the bill was introduced in October, Murphy stated:

“As access to health care and the right to choose are under attack at the federal level, we will support, defend, and protect reproductive rights here in New Jersey. “The Reproductive Freedom Act” will remove barriers to reproductive health, as well as expand access to contraception while reaffirming choice. Together, we stand unwavering in our commitment to work towards reproductive freedom for all New Jerseyans.”

In part, it was Timothy Plan founder Art Ally’s pro-life commitment that led him in 1992 to start helping churches provide biblically sound retirement resources for pastors. Today, Ally’s commitment has expanded beyond the pulpit to help Americans make God-honoring investments that support life—at all stages.  

“Infanticide is the ultimate evil,” Ally said. “Nothing is more horrific than the death of an innocent unborn child who is voiceless, helpless and whose plan from the Lord is birth and life. We will be held accountable if we don’t help stop the killing of our most precious ones.”

The “Reproductive Freedom Act” would also repeal New Jersey’s ban on partial birth abortions and its “Parental Notification for Abortion Act,” which requires minor girls to inform parents prior to having an abortion.

The summary states the bill “specifies that it is to be liberally construed to effectuate its purposes.” The bill attempts, in effect, to remove the rights of New Jersey citizens and their future lawmakers to make any changes to the legislation or declare it void in any way at any time in the future.

The language of the bill states that if any provision is ever ruled unconstitutional, “the remaining provisions of the bill, and the application of the provision at issue to all other persons or circumstances, will not be affected thereby.”

The measure would eliminate existing regulations requiring only licensed physicians to perform abortions and those requiring that abortions be performed in a licensed hospital after 14 weeks of pregnancy.

“With the rise in Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI), Timothy Plan can make it possible for people to no longer have to choose between funding companies that support abortion,” Ally continued. “BRI affords the freedom to invest not only wisely but morally, including matters of the protection of sacred life. Investors who know they are pleasing God with their finances can sleep well at night for honoring His will and sticking to His plan.

“January is Sanctity of Human Life month. On January 22, 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating the third Sunday of January as Sanctity of Human Life day (January 17, 2021). We at Timothy Plan encourage pastors, churches and life organizations across our nation to use this day, and month, to bring awareness to the attacks that are daily waged against human life through the abortion industry.”

For 25 years, Timothy Plan has helped people achieve their financial goals while investing in a morally responsible manner. Timothy Plan, for example, does not invest in those companies that support abortion or have other agendas contrary to the teachings of Scripture—or that are actively participating in activities that may prove destructive to our communities-at-large.

Mutual funds are available through a prospectus (Timothy Plan Prospectus) by contacting the fund or a financial professional. When considering a mutual fund, investors should always carefully read the prospectus before investing to analyze the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses.
