North Carolina is on the cusp of approving a dangerous anti-abortion bill!
Senate Bill 20 passed through the Legislature only to be vetoed by Gov. Roy Cooper — but legislators are now pushing for the veto to be overturned. All North Carolina needs is one of four key legislators to reject this motion. Take action today to stop this bill for good!
SB 20 masquerades as an act that would “care for women, children, and families” but in reality is quite different. An already strict 12-week abortion ban would be shortened to 10 weeks for medication abortions — which account for more than half of all abortions. Even worse, unreasonable clinic license requirements would effectively shutter every Planned Parenthood in the state, which is, of course, the point. Finally, this bill interferes with the practice of medicine by requiring doctors to conduct unnecessary ultrasounds, mandating that they tell patients they risk sepsis and sterility with medication abortion despite the safety of those drugs, and dictating them to tell women that they “may see the remains of her unborn child.” This is not a reasonable compromise.
Four representatives in North Carolina have shown to be previous allies of abortion rights, so they are the best chance at stopping this bill for good! Please take a moment today to contact them and let them know how important it is to keep this bill vetoed. We have provided suggested language through the “Take Action” button, which can be customized to your liking. For best results, please be succinct and polite.
