abortion rights

What did you think the first time you heard about abortion?

Commentary from our friend, Janet Colm, former CEO of Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina

Even though I spent more than 30 years working for Planned Parenthood, I was not born supporting the idea that women should be able to make their own intensely personal decision about motherhood. But I think I was born with a strong sense of fairness.

Does the North Carolina Family Policy Council also want women to be punished for having abortions?

When Donald Trump says that women should be punished for having abortions, isn't he simply saying with the North Carolina Family Policy Council says? Abortion is murder. Murderers must be punished.

What's more, abortion is premeditated murder. Which means the appropriate punishment here in the Old North State is the death penalty.

Tell me I'm wrong, Tami Fitzgerald. Tell me why abortion is not murder. Tell me why North Carolina women shouldn't be put to death for having abortions.

Soon to be breaking: North Carolina prohibits training doctors to do abortions

This story is not true as of today, however it will likely be true before the end of this week. Congratulations, North Carolina. You're leading the way in ignorance and bigotry.

RALEIGH, NC -- The North Carolina General Assembly today approved extreme new legislation designed to limit abortion rights. Effective May 1st, any institution that receives state dollars or tax benefits will be prohibited from (1) training doctors to perform abortions, (2) training nurses to assist with abortions, and (3) providing any kind of abortion-related services or care.

In the meantime, another extremist anti-abortion law gets struck down

In a unanimous decision released today, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has blocked enforcement of the state’s pre-abortion ultrasound law, finding that it violates the First Amendment rights of physicians who provide abortions.

The extremists are willing to sacrifice all other rights for the inalienable rights of a zygote? Gotta love those family values.
