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.
