Legislating Women's Choices, One Waiting Period at a Time

NC House member Jacqueline Schaffer (R-Mecklenburg) is against abortion in all cases, no exceptions, but in pushing an extension of the waiting period for North Carolina women seeking an abortion, from 24 hours to three days, Schaffer claimed she was only doing her fellow female citizens a huge favor.

"We see waiting periods all throughout areas of our society in the medical context as well as in the real estate context, in the, you know, issues relating to marriage," Schaffer said during the House debate.

Got it? Women's bodies are like real estate.

Until North Carolina women stand up and push back against this assault on their rights, the assaults will continue.
