TRENTON, NJ – New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has a message for New Jerseyans who want to see children return to school in September without facemasks. That message is, that you want kids to die. After saying his decision to require face masks in school in September was not a political one, Murphy made it a political one.
“I need to be very clear about one more thing. There are now 13 kids with COVID currently being treated in our hospitals, two of whom are in intensive care,” Murphy said. “There are those on one side in this who will preface these numbers with the word only. They are essentially perfectly accepting of these numbers. Remember, we have seven losses of life since the beginning of this awful pandemic of kids under the age of 18. We can never say only to that.”
This might be a good time to note that the governor also believes in full-term abortion, a procedure where a full-term baby is ripped from its mother’s womb and destroyed. In October of 2020, Murphy signed an extensive pro-abortion bill.
The Reproductive Freedom Act explicitly ensures all New Jerseyans have the right to make their own personal health decisions when it comes to birth control and pregnancy-related care, including abortion.
“The decision about whether and when to become a parent is one of the most important life decisions we make. We need to trust all people who can become pregnant to make decisions about their own health and lives,” Murphy said.
Now, Murphy is concerned about the lives of children…at least those who were fortunate enough to make it through the abortion selection process.
He criticized his opponents as the killers of children. The evil that lurks in your neighborhood, grinning at the prospect to see children die of COVID-19.
“This is what only means to them. They are saying that they’re fine with kids, many, by the way, still too young to be vaccinated, contracting COVID. They are saying that they will just accept an untold number of asymptomatic children spreading the Delta variant among their educators and friends in their schools or taking COVID home to spread among their families and communities,” Murphy said. “They are saying that they will accept outbreaks that shut down schools just like what’s happened in other states without masking requirements where entire districts are shut down with hundreds if not thousands of kids and educators exposed.”
Murphy continued his political tirade against those who oppose face masks in public schools saying he feels the majority of New Jersey is on this side of the ever-changing and evolving COVID-19 science. One that, in this case mutated faster than the virus itself.
“When they say only, they are saying that they are perfectly willing to accept children landing in the ICU or dying from COVID. They won’t say it out loud, but it’s exactly what they are saying, and I cannot be kind about that,” Murphy added. “It shouldn’t surprise anyone that we along with I firmly believe a majority of New Jerseyans wholeheartedly reject that in its entirety. We are not going to sacrifice the health of any child, any educator, any family, or any community. We’re not just going to let COVID shut down our schools.”
