Ahead Of Dobbs Anniversary, North Carolina “Key in Post-Roe Fight Over Abortion Rights” 

Josh Stein: “This is an issue that can tip the balance.” 

This Saturday marks one year since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Headed into the critical 2024 elections, The Messenger underscores how North Carolina Democrats like Attorney General and candidate for governor Josh Stein are “leaning into the fight over abortion access” as  “few 2024 battleground states will be more important…than North Carolina.” 

Stein has never backed down from the fight to protect women’s freedoms to make their own health care decisions. Next November, he’ll stand up for women across North Carolina whose energy around this issue “can tip the balance” and make sure the Governor’s office remains in good hands. Stein also noted that North Carolina Republicans’ extreme abortion ban has made “what was once an abstract concept…incredibly real, because it’s affecting women’s lives today in North Carolina.” 

As polling shows more North Carolinians oppose Republicans’ abortion ban than support it, GOP politicos warn that it’s “an issue that should concern” Republicans and suggest candidates  “avoid extreme rhetoric.” That is sure to pose a problem for Lietenant Governor Mark Robinson who has doubled down and made clear he wants a total ban on abortion in North Carolina, even in the case of rape or incest.
