When New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) issued a line-item veto of $7.5 million in funding for women’s health services he claimed he was vetoing the money over “duplicate services.” But the cut has caused significant damage, forcing six of the state’s 58 family planning centers to close. Christie has repeatedly vetoed attempts to restore the funding.
