The National Network of Abortion Funds is appalled at Governor Pat McCrory and the state legislature's actions to unilaterally sign HB 2 into law, legalizing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and non-binary people in North Carolina. The Governor uses harmful and stigmatizing rhetoric that marginalizes and endangers trans women. As trans women are being targeted, we must answer the call and stand up to this patriarchal attack for the sake of all women.
Our fights are intertwined. Ensuring access to bathrooms and abortion care -- regardless of income, insurance, race, immigration status, ability and gender ---are based on the same principles of compassion, dignity, and fairness.
