Outside of North Carolina Legislature Building where General Assembly meets

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper has vetoed the Parents’ Bill of Rights, the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, and a bill that will prohibit gender transition procedures on minors. Now it’s up to the General Assembly to OVERRIDE these misguided vetoes!

Please TAKE ACTION NOW by visiting NC Family’s Action Center and calling your State House and Senate Members to OVERRIDE the Governor’s veto of these three important pro-family bills! (NC Family’s Action Center will identify your State House and Senate members, provide their legislative phone numbers, and give helpful talking points.)

Background on the Bills

Parents’ Bill of Rights

SB 29 will clarify and codify the rights of parents to direct the upbringing of their children, especially in the areas of education and healthcare. This bill is designed to foster transparency and a better relationship between parents and their child’s school and health care providers, encouraging these parties to work together so the child can thrive.

Fairness in Women’s Sports Act

HB 574 will require sports teams in middle school, high school, and at the collegiate level to be designated as male, female, or co-ed on the basis of biological sex, and it will prohibit biological males from participating on female sports teams.

Gender Transition/Minors

HB 808 will prevent that administration of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and gender transition surgeries on minors in North Carolina. It also would provide broad conscience protections for healthcare practitioners who did not wish to participate in these experimental procedures, and it would prevent state taxpayer dollars from being used to pay for any of these gender transition procedures.
