NC Senators pulled a shameless move on Tuesday night. In a sneak attack, they gutted a bad bill ostensibly about Sharia Law and loaded the bill with unprecedented anti-abortion measures. Everything transpired in the evening, with a second reading on the NC Senate floor at 7pm.
A vote was reached at 8pm, and the bill passed along party lines. 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 agenda.
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]
