NCDP Statement On 49th Anniversary Of Roe v. Wade

Ahead of the 49th anniversary of Roe v. Wade on Saturday, January 22, North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Bobbie Richardson released the following statement: 

“Tomorrow marks 49 years since Roe v. Wade, yet Republicans from the state legislature to the U.S. Senate race continue to attack reproductive rights. North Carolina Republicans have proven their intention of stigmatizing abortion and restricting access to reproductive care time and time again. For the health and wellbeing of North Carolinians, we must change course. 

“While Republicans make every effort to strip away health care access from families, Democrats will fight to defend people’s right to make their own health care decisions. On the 49th anniversary of Roe, it is more important than ever that we fight to not make it the last. In 2022, North Carolina voters will hold Republicans accountable for their extreme, out of touch agenda at the ballot box.”
