NC Gov. McCrory Breaks “No More Restrictions on Abortion” Pledge

During last year’s campaign for Governor, NC’s Pat McCrory was emphatic when asked what further restrictions on abortion he would sign into law:  “None.” Today, as Governor, he says he isn’t breaking his campaign pledge by signing a bill where the very first line of the bill’s title reads “AN ACT … TO LIMIT ABORTION COVERAGE UNDER HEALTH INSURANCE PLANS OFFERED UNDER A HEALTH BENEFIT EXCHANGE OPERATING IN NORTH CAROLINA OR OFFERED BY A COUNTY OR MUNICIPALITY…”  It’s impossible to argue one is not signing a bill that enacts restrictions on abortion if the very first line in it means that many women who will buy health coverage or now have coverage will be restricted from buying health plans that cover abortion services! A particularly egregious example of a politician saying one thing during the campaign and doing another after he was elected.
