BREAKING: NC GOP Turns Motorcycle Safety Bill Into Abortion Bill With No Public Notice

See on Scoop.itDidYouCheckFirst

WASHINGTON — North Carolina House Republicans are pushing legislation that would restrict abortion access, attaching the measure to an unrelated motorcycle safety bill on Wednesday and giving neither the public nor Democratic legislators any advance notice.


On Wednesday morning, state Rep. Joe Sam Queen (D) wrote on Twitter, “New abortion bill being heard in the committee I am on. The public didn’t know. I didn’t even know.”


“I wish I had more time to look at this new bill before I had to ask questions about it or debate it,” he added.


The bill then passed the state House Judiciary Committee in a 10-5 party-line vote.


The stealth maneuver came after North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) threatened to veto a similar Senate bill on Wednesday morning. The Senate legislation would require abortion providers to meet strict licensing standards and would mandate that a doctor is present for the entire procedure.
