NC House Republicans sank to a new low by scheduling and postponing a vote to override the Governor’s veto of SB 359 NINE TIMES. Representative Sydney Batch showed up. Instead of taking time to recover from her mastectomy she went to the legislature to make sure this egregious attack on abortion rights did not become law. Send her a note of appreciation today.
About SB 359:
This “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act” is a farce. It’s a solution in search of a problem. Its real goal is to intimidate doctors and simply make it harder for women to access abortion care.
SB 359 is part of a coordinated national right-wing effort to eventually ban abortion outright and ask the conservative majority on the U.S. Supreme Court (five men, two appointed by Trump) to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision which guarantees a woman’s right to an abortion.
Despite the right-wing attacks on abortion rights, poll after poll shows that a strong majority of Americans want to maintain the Roe decision and a woman’s right to an abortion.
