Degrading & Disgusting

May 17, 2023

On May 16, NC Republicans overrode Governor Cooper’s veto of their 12-week abortion ban, Senate Bill 20.

This ban is a degrading and disgusting attack on our bodies and rights. It was created and passed in a rushed, undemocratic process with a total lack of transparency and input from the public.

This huge, 46-page bill not only bans abortion after just 12 weeks of pregnancy, but enacts even more unnecessary restrictions on NC doctors and clinics, likely forcing many to close their doors.

“This bill is a slap in the face. It is a muzzle over our mouths. And it is a straitjacket on our bodies.” said Sen. Natasha Marcus.

We must fight back against this ban by voting the anti-abortion extremists who supported it out of office. We have already recruited several progressive women to run in critical swing districts to challenge anti-abortion legislators and show them the door in ‘24, and our work continues.

You can help our recruitment and training efforts by making a contribution today. 

We want to thank our Featured Candidates again for bravely standing up for our rights and giving powerful and often personal testimonies during the little time they could debate the ban. We must send more truly progressive women to the legislature to fight alongside them.

Thank you for being in this fight with us.
