I will join the rally this morning. This was so underhanded and deceitful to pull this off without public awareness or debate. I hope they are voted out next election.

It is underhanded and deceitful. And the fact that it was done so quietly means this was in the works for quite some time.

To quote a friend of mine from facebook which I agree with. First Fracking, now this. "Regardless of your position on abortion, this is not the way laws should be passed in North Carolina. We debate, we discuss, and we eventually vote. Ramming through a vote on the cusp of a holiday weekend is wrong, undemocratic, and un-American. And we need to let the Senate know it."

Unfortunately I have to work -- but will be attending my first Moral Monday. This is getting scary - when they can use procedural chickanery to push through legislation that they know the majority of NCers don't agree with.

Soon you won't be able to tell the difference between Texas and N.C. I'm disgusted and embarrassed.

What's really pathetic is the jerk who said the new provisions were to ensure "women's safety". BS This bill is designed to do away with legal abortions in our state. At least be truthful about the intent. The sad thing is it won't do away with abortions, just drive more women to quacks and sometimes death.

I agree also. To me it's not even as much about your particular position on abortion but the way the law was shoved through. Who's to know what else is in the works or being discussed right now. As a previous poster alluded; they are SUPPOSED to discuss and vote based on the majority in the state county or district.

This legislature and governor were elected by a majority vote in the last election, in a state that has voted for a Democratic presidential candidate only once since 1980 (2008). Clearly someone must be supporting what they are doing ....
