Last Friday, Governor Roy Cooper vetoed HB 453–Human Life Nondiscrimination Act/No Eugenics, a bill that would prevent a physician from performing an abortion if he or she knows the mother is seeking the abortion because of the presumed race or sex of the baby, or a diagnosis of Down Syndrome.
In his veto message, Governor Cooper called the bill “an unprecedented government intrusion” between a woman and her doctor.
If our state lawmakers fail to OVERRIDE Cooper’s veto, his tragic action will endanger the lives of countless unborn babies whose race or sex is considered “undesirable” or who have received a diagnosis of Down syndrome.
Protect unborn babies from discrimination and eugenic abortions, because every child in North Carolina deserves a chance to live!
Please take a moment to contact your lawmakers, and pass this alert along to friends and family. Lives literally hang in the balance!
