In response to the Feb. 8 news article “N.C. to appeal abortion ruling”: Tami Fitzgerald of the N.C. Values Coalition stated that the law does not interfere with a woman’s medical decision. Now, all laws are designed to interfere with something. If it doesn’t interfere, there is no reason for its existence.
State Rep. Ruth Samuelson stated in support of the law that women deserve to have as much information as possible before undergoing this sensitive procedure. Deserving information is a far cry from having it forced on them.
The above two reasons are clearly incompatible with the provisions of the current law.
