Keep your promise to the women of North Carolina

To be delivered to Governor Roy Cooper

Petition Statement

Stand up for women’s health by honoring your promise not to support new restrictions on abortion access.

Reject the sneaky and dirty tactics the Senate and House are using to advance extreme anti-abortion legislation. The women of North Carolina and the rest of the nation are watching to see where you stand.
There are currently 6,825 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

North Carolina is sneakily attaching anti-abortion measures to bills that are completely unrelated. First the North Carolina Senate passed an extreme anti-choice bill that could shut down all but one abortion clinic in the state and would severely limit health care options for North Carolina women.

Then the House tacked on abortion restrictions to a motorcycle safety bill (check out #MotorcycleVagina, currently trending on Twitter!). We urgently need your help to stop these bills from becoming law—and we have a real chance to win this together.

During his 2012 gubernatorial campaign, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory promised voters that he would not support any new restrictions on access to abortion. So let’s remind him of his promise to stand up for the women in his state.

These sweeping pieces of legislation are a direct attack on the reproductive health options available to North Carolina women.

Through his influence or veto, Governor McCrory could put a stop to these bills. That's why we need you to tell him to remember his promise to defend women’s health.

Just yesterday, more than 60 protesters were arrested at the state capital in an act of civil disobedience to speak out against this extreme anti-abortion legislation. Stand with them by signing the petition now.
