Apparently a 72 hour waiting period doesn’t apply to lawmakers..(HB465)

Regardless of the serious anti-abortion content of HB465, the North Carolina House voted to accept the State Senate’s changes to it on Jun 3, 2015.  As Shannah Sayers of Naral Pro-Choice North Carolina said, “apparently a 72-hour waiting period doesn’t apply to lawmakers.”

HB465 passed the Senate after many changes on Monday, June 1, and the House gave final approval to the changed bill on Wednesday, June 3.  Next it goes to Governor McCrory – who can sign it or VETO IT.  For the sake and safety of pregnant women and doctors, ASK HIM to veto it!!

You can call and/or email Governor McCrory now!  Phone 919-814-2050.  You can leave a message here.  Email him at
