Ah, how delightful it is to witness the North Carolina Republicans standing up for the sanctity of life and infuriating the Democrats in the process. Despite Governor Roy Cooper’s feeble attempt to veto the 12-week abortion ban, the Republicans, armed with their supermajority, triumphantly turned it into law. Oh, the tears of the pro-abortion supporters must be simply delicious.
The Republicans aptly named this legislation the “Care for Women, Children, and Families Act,” because nothing says care and compassion like protecting innocent lives from the clutches of abortion. It’s heartwarming to see House Speaker Tim Moore proudly declare that the value of human life has been affirmed. Finally, someone has the courage to prioritize the rights of the unborn.
Of course, the Democrats and their allies in the pro-abortion camp couldn’t contain their outrage. They flooded the House gallery, screaming “shame” at the Republicans as they sealed the victory for the pro-life movement. How touching it is to witness the desperation of those who champion the unrestricted killing of unborn children.
But fear not, for the Republicans did not stop at the ban itself. They generously allocated millions of dollars to support pregnant women, recognizing that choosing life is not always easy. With $75 million for childcare and an additional $59 million for foster-related care, they are truly providing a path forward for both the mother and her unborn child. Rep. Kristin Baker summed it up perfectly, emphasizing the resources and knowledge that will empower women to make a positive choice.
Of course, the bill was met with condemnation from the North Carolina Democrats, including Attorney General Josh Stein, who conveniently happens to be running for governor. It’s no surprise that those who prioritize the unrestricted access to abortion would be displeased by a law that respects the dignity of human life. But let their cries of outrage be drowned out by the resounding victory of the pro-life movement. North Carolina has taken a significant step towards becoming a pro-life state, much to the dismay of the abortion advocates.
