North Carolina Bill to Call Abortion a Cause of Pre-Term Birth Gets House Approval

Robin Marty writes for RH Reality Check: “A contentions bill that would require health teachers to inform seventh-grade students that abortion—along with smoking, drinking, drug use, and lack of prenatal care—can affect carrying a pregnancy to full term, passed a first reading in the North Carolina house Wednesday. Although the abortion claim has no basis in medical fact, 73 state senators voted in favor of it.”
