NCRTL’s Response to Gov. Cooper’s Executive Order


On July 6th, Governor Roy Cooper signed Executive Order number 263 "Protecting Access to Reproductive Health Care Services in North Carolina" reaffirming his pro-abortion stance.

Abortion is frequently categorized as reproductive health care. The definition of healthcare according to dictionary.com is "the field concerned with the maintenance or restoration of the health of the body or mind." In every instance of abortion, a baby dies. How can this be healthcare? This is the antithesis of healthcare!


The United States Supreme Court's recent ruling (6-3) overturning 49 years of Roe v Wade, DID NOT make abortion illegal in the United States. The court ruling recognized that abortion on demand was never a part of the United States Constitution and returns the abortion issue to the duly elected representatives of state legislatures. Many polls have shown consistently that there has never been a majority support for the holding of Roe which was abortion on demand through all 9 months of pregnancy.


We desire that North Carolina NOT be known as an abortion destination state. As such, it is imperative for all North Carolinians to work hard, now more than ever, to elect pro-life legislators within the NC General Assembly and in the US Congress to pass pro-life laws.
