North Carolina Governor To Break Pledge And Sign Anti-Abortion Bill
He said he wouldn’t, but now he is.
North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) said he will sign an abortion bill passed by the legislature that critics say will close all but one of the state’s abortion clinics.
When McCrory campaigned for his job, he pledged not to sign any bill restricting access to abortion.
While campaigning for governor last fall, McCrory said he would not support any new restrictions on abortions. He recently said the House bill satisfies the safety concerns of the medical professionals in his administration while not further restricting access.
