There’s no hiding it: NC Republicans are weaponizing health care against women.

I’m heartbroken for women across our state and country.

I’m scared for women of the South and what last night’s vote and today’s discussions mean for the future of our country.

Because there are no other words to describe what’s happening: By passing the 12-week abortion ban, Republicans are weaponizing health care and putting politics over doctors, women, and choice.

Our fight isn’t over. We will fight this legislation with everything we have, Republicans will be voted out next November, and we will elect people who support Americans’ most fundamental rights.
