Over the past week, we have been receiving messages from pregnancy care centers who received a weird and invasive questionnaire from a public official.

State Senator Gladys Robinson violated NC statutes in a harassing request sent to pregnancy care centers who are members of the NC Pregnancy Care Fellowship. It was an obvious effort to intimidate the organizations from applying for future state funds.

On letterhead from the General Assembly’s Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operations, Senator Robinson, incorrectly acting on behalf of the Commission, sent a letter citing N.C. General Statute 120-75.1(6) as her authority for requesting an extensive list of information, and threatened criminal penalties for non-compliance if a 60-question survey was not answered.

However, there are two problems with the request: 1) The four-page questionnaire contains unlawful inquiries pertaining to operations and services paid for independently. 2) In addition, NC General Statute 120-77(a)(1)(c) states that the “Commission,” not individual members, has the authority to make auditing requests of non-State recipients of public funds.

The letter is a violation of state statutes, an abuse of power, and clearly intended to intimidate these non-profits who do nothing but help pregnant women in crisis.

Pro-abortion activist members of the General Assembly have been trying to bully pregnancy care centers with their disinformation campaign and are now going the extra mile with unethical authoritarian tactics. Pregnancy care centers help pregnant women and their babies, but the billion-dollar abortion industry and their surrogates only offer death as a solution to pregnant women in crisis and continue to stoop lower and lower with their sordid tactics.

Senator Robinson’s unethical request exceeded her legislative authority, bullied pregnancy care centers, and betrayed pregnant women all over North Carolina who desperately need support and care. When we heard about what was going on, our team jumped into action by providing assistance to care centers, and also by raising the public alarm over the Senator’s bullying.

This is just another way that NC Values works behind the scenes to ensure that your pro-life, pro-family, and pro-freedom values are protected.
