Suzanne Buckley, the Director of NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina [1], has an excellent op-ed [2] in this morning’s edition of Raleigh’s News & Observer.

“Most North Carolinians think decisions about reproductive health care should be left to a woman, not politicians. But the General Assembly isn’t listening to its constituents. In spite of public opinion, the leadership in Raleigh is on a mission to ban abortion care in our state.

So far this session, legislators have introduced seven bills restricting access to abortion and reproductive health care. Two of the most egregious are Senate Bill 308, an amendment to the Woman’s Right to Know Act, and House Bill 716, a ban on sex-selection abortions.

These bills aim to disempower North Carolina women and the medical professionals who care for their reproductive health. If they pass, these laws will effectively ban abortion care in many areas of our state, allowing North Carolina to join the ranks of Mississippi, North Dakota and Kansas.
