Abortion-rights advocates hold vigil outside the Governor’s mansion

Planned Parenthood and advocates for women’s health will stage a two-day vigil outside the Governor’s mansion in Raleigh this week. Participants want to pressure Gov. Pat McCrory to veto Senate Bill 353, legislation that opponents say will hurt women and could dramatically restrict access to safe, legal abortion.

Last week, the governor told reporters he felt signing the bill that enacts restrictions on abortion would not break an earlier campaign pledge [1].

The vigil will run from 10:00 a.m. Monday to 10:00 p.m. Tuesday at 200 N. Blount St, Raleigh.
