Republicans in the NC General Assembly have made it clear that no matter how damaging, unjust, and unpopular this extreme abortion ban would be — they will proceed anyways.
Their priority isn’t the well-being of children. If it were, our public schools would have universal free lunches and enough counselors.
Their priority isn’t families. If it were, we would have adequate maternal health resources, affordable childcare, and would still have the Child Tax Credit.
Their priority is restricting abortion access, and with it, peoples’ freedom to make their own choices about if and when to start a family.
We strongly condemn this craven attack on abortion access and reproductive freedom — and we will not rest until the right to choose is safe again in North Carolina.
