Regarding the April 2 Under the Dome article “Abortion restrictions proposed in House”: I am constantly amazed at the number of North Carolina legislators who are graduates of medical schools. They must be, as they are so willing to use their hard-earned medical knowledge (?) to make decisions usually reserved for a woman and her medical adviser.
Professionals obviously not qualified, according to our legislators, to help her make personal reproductive health decisions that affect her life, the lives of her family members and her own body!
It is time for sanctimonious “I-know-what-is-best-for-the-little-woman” legislators to leave medical decisions to those who have actually gone to a medical college and to their patients. Perhaps they should be putting their efforts into legislation that actually helps those already born, such as health care, adequate nutrition, quality education experiences and well-paying jobs for the family wage earner. North Carolina falls woefully short of all of these.
