Emergency Contraception


New Jersey law ensures that sexual-assault survivors receive access to emergency contraception (EC) in hospital emergency rooms.  As part of the minimum standards for the examination and treatment of a sexual-assault survivor, a physician or other health-care provider must provide a woman with medically and factually accurate written and oral information about EC, offer her EC, and provide EC to her upon request.

N.J. Stat. Ann. §§ 26:2H-12.6b to 26:2H-12.6g (Enacted 2005); N.J. Stat. Ann. § 52:4B-44 (Enacted 1986; Last Amended 2005).
