Wrongness of Abortion Bans

Showing off the impressive cluelessness and hatefulness of a rich white man, the architect of Texas abortion ban, Jonathan Franklin Mitchell, writes in supreme court brief that ‘women can “control their reproductive lives” without access to abortion.

Wrongness of CPCs in State Budget – LTEs and Op-Eds

Raleigh NOW did an action at their August meeting to write LTEs on inappropriateness of taxpayer money going to crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs), which are also known as anti-abortion clinics and fake clinics. Some of these were written when the Senate’s state budget was available, allocating $4 million to CPCs and anti-abortion organizations. Later, it came out that the NC House was allocating $9 million to CPCs and anti-abortion organizations!! Both should be allocating NOTHING. Others are writing about this too. If you write something, please email it to me or post here, whether it gets published or not.

De Pas: Shocked To Learn My Tax Dollars Going to Anti-Abortion CPCs

What happened to “separation of church and state”? I was shocked to learn that my NC tax dollars are being used to support anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers (“CPCs”) in the House version of the state budget for $9 million. The mission of these CPCs is to eradicate abortion as an option for pregnant women.
