The Fight for Life at the NC Legislature

July 6, 2013

What does it take to get my sister and me up at 4:30 am during a holiday week to travel to Raleigh for a legislative session?

“The pro-life provisions of the bill are supported by a large majority of North Carolinians.” said Representative Paul Stam. “They don’t want their taxes used to pay for abortions for others.”

The pro-life provisions in the bill are as follows:
