North Carolina Abortion in 2021 and Turning This Around

North Carolina lawmakers are definitely hostile to abortion now, as shown by the many restrictions added since 2011, the limited number of abortion clinics, the limited areas which have clinics, and legislature funneling taxpayer money to anti-abortion organizations and individual CPCs. All this despite how safe abortion is. This is the status of abortion in North Carolina in March 2021, and how it could be improved.

Roe 2021: What is Status of Abortion Access in NC?

It’s been 48 years since the Roe v. Wade decision made abortion legal in this country. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG) was a huge advocate for women, but “she was not that fond of Roe v. Wade as a decision,” because she believed the landmark ruling was too sweeping and vulnerable to attacks, according to Professor Mary Hartnett, who co-authored a biography of RBG. RBG, who passed away on September 18, 2020, was the focus of our pro-choice signature ad this year. RBG was right! Legal abortion has been under attack since it was legalized in 1973, and those attacks have ramped up in North Carolina since 2011.

LTEs and Op-Eds on Taxpayer Money Paying for Anti-Abortion Work

There is another whole area of wrongness in the state budget which is not getting much coverage – our taxpayer money going to fully anti-abortion and inappropriately religious clinics. The proposed state budget gives taxpayer money away to two main anti-abortion organizations, but also directly to many CPCs that are part of one of the anti-abortion organizations, the Carolina Pregnancy Care Fellowship (CPCF).

Muck: Anti-Abortion Lies (CPCs get big money in State Budget)

Calling out NC lawmakers for inappropriate use of taxpayer money. They’ve doubled down on their extremism and taxpayers will pay at least $2.64 million in their budget for religious anti-abortion activities of so-called crisis pregnancy centers in North Carolina.

Over $2.6 Million of 2019 State Budget to CPCs

Over $2.6 million has been allocated from this state budget for anti-abortion organizations, including CPCs.  There are so many problems with the state budget (like refusal to expand Medicaid), that more money for CPCs is not getting sufficient attention. However, CPCs did get the attention of DHHS, Professor Gene Nichol, and some doctors at UNC-CH.
