NC Senators pulled a shameless move on Tuesday night. In a sneak attack, they gutted a totally unrelated bill and loaded it with unprecedented anti-abortion measures. Everything transpired at night, during a holiday week when they thought they could slip this by us.
At 8pm the NC Senate voted to close the doors of providers of safe and legal abortion across our state. It's not over yet. It will be heard for the third reading on Wednesday, July 3rd at 9AM in the Senate at 16 W. Jones St. in Raleigh.
All of these efforts in the NC Senate are led by Sen. Warren Daniel, who holds extreme views on women's health and is not
holding back when it comes to pushing his harmful anti-women's health
HB 695 will jeopardize women's health and safety. Tell our state's leaders that women don't need politicians to have a hand in making their most complex, private and personal decisions.
Email Senator Pro-Tem Berger, Senator Apodaca, Speaker
Tillis, and Gov. McCrory right now and urge them to reject the extreme
political agenda of Sen. Daniel!

Don't Bet Against Women
Dear [Decision Maker],
Every person should have the right to make decisions about their reproductive health without government intrusion. I am writing to urge you to reject the extreme agenda put forward last night by Senator Warren Daniel. His single-minded effort to restrict women's access to health care is out of step with North Carolina voters, and today hundreds of women and their supporters will gather in Raleigh to drive home this message.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
