  • NC Senate GOP leaders are expected to hold a floor vote this week on a bill that would require a doctor providing an abortion to provide state health officials “with a statement by the physician confirming that the woman did not tell the physician and the physician has reason to believe that the woman did not seek the abortion because of the unborn child's actual or presumed race or sex or the presence or presumed presence of Down syndrome." HB 453 is supported by anti-choice proponents and some Down syndrome advocates but is opposed by medical groups, prominent disability rights advocates in the state, and by the ACLU. If approved by the Senate, the bill would go to Gov. Cooper, who has vetoed other abortion bills in in the past.
