Femcare, the only North Carolina abortion provider that could for sure continue offering legal abortion care under the state’s new abortion law, was closed on July 31, but it is now waiting for another inspection to reopen its doors.
Reproductive rights advocates, led by the Planned Parenthood Health Systems Action Fund of North Carolina, spent all day at the “veto vigil” to remind the governor of his campaign promise not to sign anti-choice restrictions into law.
As SB 353, the North Carolina motorcycle safety bill that was amended to include abortion restrictions, awaits review in the senate rules committee, Republican supporters of the bill, including Gov. Pat McCrory, are seeing increasing disapproval among both health-care organizations and voters in the state.
Rather than head to the floor for a vote, SB 353 is being sent to committee for review instead.
