Their pro-abortion bad bill….

We have seen some pretty bad bills during our time advocating for your values in the legislature. However, the recently filed pro-abortion bill known as HB1126 seems to be in a league of its own.

It is a bill that is so bad, it makes you want to both cry and laugh.

HB1126 is basically the NC abortionists’ plan for a post-Roe v. Wade North Carolina. In short, the plan focuses on attacking Viagra, defunding crisis pregnancy centers, and allowing abortions up to 20 weeks, with major exceptions after 20 weeks.

However, the most ironic part is something you may actually agree with: acknowledging that a child exists at the moment of conception. In a section entitled “Child Support Begins at Conception,” line 22 of HB1126 states:

“Child support ordered under this section shall begin with the first month in which the child was conceived,” and ”award child support retroactive to the first month in which the child was conceived.”

The fact that the pro-abortion lobby and legislators cannot see the grave irony of believing child support ought to begin at conception—but that a child's life does not—would be funny were it not so tragic.

North Carolina legislators have passed dozens of restrictions on abortion since Republicans took control, but the abortion industry has successfully challenged many of them in court. A lawsuit two years ago lifted the 49-year-old ban on abortions after 20 weeks (the same one HB1126 would re-instate) and ordered abortion on demand up to “viability” as determined by the abortionist. Another lawsuit seeks to strike down almost all the other limitations on abortion the General Assembly has passed and rule that our state Constitution contains a right to abortion! What a ridiculous idea that our founders contemplated a right to abortion when they passed our Constitution.

Planned Parenthood, NARAL, the Abortion Rights Federation, and their legislators want North Carolina to become a safe haven for abortion in the South. Sadly, when Roe v. Wade is reversed, it will become exactly that given the current state of the law. Because three out of four of the states surrounding North Carolina will either outlaw abortion altogether or stop it when a heartbeat is detected, women from the states of South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and other states will pour over our borders to get abortions.

Would you help us stop that from happening?

We have been hard at work since last year preparing to meet the challenge once Roe v. Wade is overturned, and we are ready for this moment in history. We must build consensus for the strongest protections possible for unborn children and women in North Carolina, and we need your help!

We have a lot of work to do preparing our state for Roe v. Wade’s reversal. If you support our continued work fighting against bills like HB1226, and fighting for North Carolina's unborn, would you consider making a needed end-of-month donation before MIDNIGHT TONIGHT of $25, $50, $100, or more?
