“North Carolina Republicans Propose Controversial Abortion Ban as State Becomes Destination for Women Seeking Access to Care”

North Carolina has been labeled “an abortion destination” following the fall of Roe, with activists pushing for a ban after six weeks of pregnancy. As the GOP debates abortion proposals in the state, a high-risk obstetrician has voiced their concern over the current law, which they argue is forcing them to provide dangerous care. Additionally, House Republicans have been holding private discussions on the topic, leading to criticism from some who believe the debate should be open to the public. Several opinion pieces in the Charlotte Observer have accused North Carolina Republicans of hiding their abortion debate from the public and questioned what they are afraid of. With such intense debate surrounding abortion in the state, it remains to be seen what action lawmakers will take.
