This Wednesday, WE NEED YOUR HELP TO PUSH SB 359 OVER THE FINISH LINE! The vote to override Governor Roy Cooper’s veto of SB 359-Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act has been scheduled for Wednesday, June 5 in the NC House. This is the last vote necessary for this critical, life-saving bill to be enacted into law.
NC Speaker of the House Rep.Tim Moore is hosting a news conference at noon on Wednesday in the Press Room of the NC Legislative Building to reiterate why this is so important to North Carolina. Please gather outside the Press Room prior to noon to show your support. Then, visit your Representive and urge him or her to support the override. Plan to stay for the vote, which is expected to happen during the House Session, which is expected to start at 3:00.
If you need help finding out who your representive is, you can visit NC Family’s Action Center. Scroll to the bottom of the page and put in your zip+four or your address to find out who your NC House representative is.
The Legislative Building is located at 16 West Jones Street, Raleigh, NC 27601. If you need directions or information on parking, go to the NC Legislature’s Visitor Information page at www.ncleg.gov/About/VisitorInfo. To find the Press Room and for directions to your representative’s office, ask at the information desk in the lobby just inside the front door of the NC Legislative Building.
“North Carolina’s leaders must take a stand together and say that we aren’t New York, we aren’t Virginia, we won’t allow or try to let a living, breathing child that is born alive be left to die on their own without any care in our state,” said Rep. Pat McElraft (R-Carteret), a lead sponsor of the House’s “Born-Alive” legislation. “These little babies are North Carolinians who made it alive into our state and are surviving on their own. They’re worthy of our protection.”
We hope to see you there!
