NCGA GOP overrides Gov Cooper’s veto of SB20 and pass dangerous abortion ban.
Despite Republican attempts to disguise this abortion ban as “mainstream,” Senate Bill 20 would dramatically reduce access to abortion and could cause women’s health clinics across the state to shut down.
SB20 is dangerous legislation that puts politicians in the middle of deeply personal healthcare decisions and abandons the medical advice of doctors who urged lawmakers to stop this ban. It will have devastating impacts on abortion access, putting up medically unnecessary barriers to reproductive care, and for many – it may impact their access altogether. The NCGA GOP plan to continue to erode reproductive freedoms, with more restrictions planned for future sessions.
In 2024, North Carolina Democrats will ensure every voter knows where their leaders stand on this issue and will continue to fight to elect candidates that stand up for reproductive freedom in North Carolina.
