Or What's a Blue Wave For?
The NC House Republicans failed yesterday to override Governor Roy Cooper's veto of their newest attempt to criminalize abortion and stigmatize doctors who provide it ... the “Born Alive Abortion Survivors Act,” a focus-group tested title for a bill meant to further politicize health care for women and tar Governor Cooper as a supporter of infanticide.
Two Democrats broke ranks and voted with the Republicans, but that wasn't enough to overcome the veto. Last fall's election guaranteed the collapse of the Republican super-majority in the House, and yesterday saw the first example of that.
