Progress NC Calls on Gov. McCrory to Keep His Promise To Women
Now is the time for real leadership from the Governor
RALEIGH—Progress NC today called on Gov. Pat McCrory to keep his promise to women by opposing any bill restricting women’s access to safe and legal abortion care including S353 and H695.
“Yesterday’s ruse isn’t fooling anyone. S353, no matter the changes, still restricts women’s access to abortion and directly contradicts Gov. McCrory’s campaign promise,” said Gerrick Brenner of Progress NC.
“You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig. No legislative machinations are going to mask the fact that Gov. McCrory is prepared to break one of the few hard and fast promises he made during his campaign for governor.”
“The truth is Gov. McCrory is trying have his cake and eat it too. He thinks he can skirt by his campaign promise and appease his right-wing base at the same time. But that’s not how it works. For too long Gov. McCrory has coasted without providing any real leadership for a state government running out of control. Gov. McCrory, the time for leadership is now.”
