RALEIGH - Today a group of North Carolina women -- including supporters, board members, and staff members of the ACLU of North Carolina -- hand-delivered a petition with more than 7,300 signatures to the office of Gov. Pat McCrory, asking the governor to “stand up for women’s health by honoring your promise not to support new restrictions on abortion access” and veto any legislation that comes across his desk that could restrict access to reproductive health care in North Carolina. The online petition was organized by ACLU Action and is still available here.

Earlier this month, more than 600 North Carolinians protested outside the state legislature just 12 hours after the North Carolina Senate approved sweeping restrictions on women’s health clinics without any public input or notice. The state House approved similar legislation on July 11 amid more protests. During his campaign last year, McCrory said he would not sign any additional restrictions on abortion access. “The women of North Carolina and the rest of the nation are watching to see where you stand,” the ACLU’s petition to McCrory reads.

Help us keep the pressure on Gov. McCrory to keep his promise by calling his office at 919-814-2000 or emailing him here.
