*We are raising the alarm, and need your help. We urgently call on all
pro-life supporters of our coalition to take action that helps us save over
26,000 babies in North Carolina per year!*
In the next few days the NC legislature will decide what legislation will
be put forward to limit abortion. This decision is being made in Republican
caucuses behind closed doors, and the pro-life movement in North Carolina
needs to act NOW, before a bill is filed. There is much pressure on these
lawmakers to present a bill that only makes minimal changes to the current
abortion law, and saves only around 4,000 babies a year.
For the legislature to present a bold pro-life bill that will save over
26,000 lives a year, they need to hear from you! A Heartbeat Act that
limits abortion when a heartbeat is detected in the pre-born child—about 6
weeks—will make a significant impact by saving the lives of 22,000 thousand
more babies than the 13-week limit being floated in legislative chambers.
States like Texas, Arkansas, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, South
Carolina (although the South Carolina Supreme Court overturned it) and
Missouri have passed Heartbeat Acts. Even Governor Ron Desantis in Florida
has indicated that he will sign a Heartbeat Act into law. This is a
decision that our legislators are deciding right now, and they need to hear
from you as soon and frequently as possible! We are talking about saving
We need all hands on deck next week! Bring your friends; bring your
families; bring your churches!!
We are organizing two important Days of Action on Tuesday and Wednesday of
next week (February 28th and March 1st). We’re calling on coalition members
from all across the state to drive down to Raleigh and join us as we go and
visit legislators in person at the General Assembly. Your presence and
activism will make a critical difference in whether legislators propose a
Heartbeat Act or a 13-week limit on abortion. If you would like to join us
