VETO of SB 359 SUSTAINED!
In a huge victory for reproductive rights, The NC House just SUSTAINED Governor Cooper’s veto of SB 359!
A few weeks ago, Governor Cooper stood with doctors and vetoed SB 359, which would have targeted health care providers who provide safe and legal abortion care with the threat of a serious criminal penalty. The implication that medical professionals are providing unethical or substandard care is insulting to physicians providing care every day across North Carolina.
Please join us in thanking our legislators for standing with North Carolina doctors in sustaining this veto.
We know the real reason these claims were pushed: to stigmatize reproductive health care and manufacture outrage. This veto ensures that we will not join the wave of anti-abortion legislation sweeping the country.
Take some time to thank your legislator NOW in sustaining Governor Cooper’s veto!
Thank you for your continued committment to reproductive rights in North Carolina.
Director of Public Affairs
PS: Make sure you thank your legislator for standing with North Carolina doctors in sustaining Governor Cooper’s veto of SB 359!

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
