Crowd Cheers As Gov. Roy Cooper Vetoes North Carolina 12 Week Abortion Ban

Gov. Roy Cooper (D) held a ceremony outdoor the place a crowd chanted veto and cheered as he vetoed a Republican-passed 12-week abortion ban in North Carolina.

Here’s a clip of the gang cheering as Gov. Cooper vetoed the invoice:

In his remarks, Cooper stated, “Standing in the way in which of progress proper now could be this Republican supermajority legislature that solely took 48 hours to show the clock again 50 years on ladies’s well being. Let’s be clear: This invoice has nothing to do with making ladies safer and every thing to do with banning abortion.”

A Meredith School Ballot discovered:

Whereas over half of our respondents wished to maintain North Carolina’s present legislation about abortion entry (20 weeks) or increase it, over one-third of voters, need to limit entry to abortion even additional or ban entry fully. A plurality of respondents (30.9%) desires to maintain the present legislation.

The division over abortion legislation is totally partisan. Over three-quarters of Democrats need to hold the present legislation untouched or increase abortion entry, whereas virtually 60 p.c of Republicans need to additional limit entry to abortions or ban entry altogether. A majority of unaffiliated voters (59.3%) would favor protecting the 20-week ban or increasing entry additional.

General, 57% of North Carolinians need to hold the present 20-week abortion legislation or increase entry to abortion and 35% need abortion restrictions.

Republicans are being pushed by their far-right fringe right into a shedding hand on abortion.

North Carolina Republicans have a supermajority within the state legislature, so they’re planning to override the governor’s veto, however the GOP abortion place is so unpopular and poisonous that Democratic governors can veto their abortion bans in public in entrance of cheering crowds.

Republicans aren’t listening, and they will pay for his or her abortion bans on the poll field in 2024.
