Pro-Life Bill Passed
May 5, 2023 | North Carolina
The North Carolina state Senate has approved a pro-life bill, the Care for Women, Children and Families Act, to save thousands of babies from abortions.
Pro-Life legislators in North Carolina have introduced a bill to ban abortions on unborn babies starting at 12 weeks and the state House signed off on the measure late Wednesday night. A Senate vote today got the bill approved in the upper chamber.
While pro-life advocates were hoping for legislation to protect babies starting at conception or at least a heartbeat bill protecting them beginning at 6 weeks, the political reality of the situation prevented that. North Carolina Republicans face an uphill battle in getting legislation approved because pro-abortion Democrat Governor Roy Cooper is certain to veto any pro-life legislation and stronger pro-life protections for babies would have a more difficult time securing the supermajority necessary to override his veto.
