NCGOP, Hellbent on Taking Rights From Women


Speaker Tim Moore recently announced that Republicans in the NC House (i.e., Tricia Cotham) have reached an agreement about a 12-week abortion ban, which will be introduced soon in Raleigh.

On the exact same day -- last Thursday -- Ronna McDaniel, the chair of the Republican National Committee, "tried to help her candidates navigate the subject, suggesting that opposing abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy was a strong position politically" (NYTimes).

In other words and according to the chair of the national Republican Party, North Carolina lawmakers are choosing an extreme position.

You could have knocked us over with a feather.

What happened to you, Tricia Cotham? I mean what really happened? Were you spooked by an apparition prophesying hellfire if you didn't change your entire political identity, betraying 60% of the electorate?

Moloch is not happy.

WFAE (Charlotte Talks, available in archive) ran an hour on dwindling abortion access in NC this morning (Wed. April 26) and there were no comments. It's like the electorate is in a coma. (Around Charlotte anyway) Maybe they're all in a housing crisis or counting their penny jar to buy some gas.
With El Nino cranking up this could be the last year for tomatoes, Jerry.
