HB 465, this year's abortion bill, is a Frankenstein Bill. It started out ugly and after some attempts to pretty it up it's still ugly as sin. It's hard to keep track and after the shenanigans of the Motorcycle Vagina bill a couple of years ago, we know it's not over til it's over.
In Chapter 1, On April Fool's Day, four Stepford wives in the NC House introduce a bill to (1) extend the mandatory waiting period to 72 hours, (2) ban any doctor who is not an Ob-GYN from performing abortions and (3) ban ECU and UNC from performing abortions or teaching abortion care. All under the guise of supporting a woman's right to choose and protect her health.
