We are excited to share with you that earlier this evening, the NC General Assembly successfully overrode Governor Cooper’s veto of pro-life legislation SB20.
Today marks the beginning of North Carolina’s first real step towards becoming a pro-life state as the “Care for Women, Children and Families Act” becomes law of the land. Pro-life North Carolinians have waited over 50 years to roll back the gestational age for sanctioned killing of pre-born children.
With this veto override, legislators have rejected Governor Cooper’s extreme, unreasonable position of abortion without restriction up to birth.
(Large turnout of pro-life supporters today in the capitol for the NCGA override vote of Gov. Cooper’s veto of prolife SB20! Thanks to everyone who was able to make it out on such short notice.)
This pro-woman legislation has $160 million in funding to help pregnant mothers including $75 million for childcare, $59 million for foster care, kinship care and children’s homes, $16 million to reduce infant and maternal mortality, and $3 million to help mothers complete college.
We sincerely thank Senator Berger, Speaker Moore, and Republican legislators for standing strong and voting on behalf of the 62% of North Carolinians who reject abortion after 12 weeks. As we look forward to the 2024 election cycle, NC Values will continue to find and support candidates who support life, and who are not for sale to the billion-dollar abortion industry.
The NC Values team was in Raleigh all day today supporting legislators as they voted to override Gov. Cooper’s veto. Our team has been fighting very, very hard for years to save as many babies as possible, and we have labored especially hard on this bill for over a year.
