Governor Pat McCrory has a big decision to make: Will he betray North Carolina women once again?
In his 2012 gubernatorial campaign, McCrory unequivocally promised that he wouldn’t sign new restrictions on a woman’s right to choose. But in 2013 he broke that promise, signing dangerous restrictions on women’s health choices into law.
He’s now faced with that dilemma again; North Carolina state House lawmakers just voted to extend the waiting period for an abortion in North Carolina from 24 to 72 hours, moving North Carolina one step closer to becoming just the fourth state with that law.
So the question is, who shows up to work — the Pat McCrory that promised his constituents no further restrictions on choice, or the one that caved to the legislature and and ruined his credibility?

More details on North Carolina House Bill 465:
- It would also require doctors who perform an abortion during the last two weeks allowed by law to send ultrasounds, measurements and all other information to the state Department of Health and Human Services.”
- Rep. Susan Fisher, D-Buncombe, tried to amend the bill to remove the requirement that doctors performing abortions near the end of the legal window must send the patient’s ultrasound to DHHS for examination.
