NCGOP Statement on SCOTUS Leak, Continuing Fight to Protect Life
May 3, 2022
For Immediate Release
Along with millions of pro-life Americans across the United States, the NCGOP is optimistic that the Supreme Court will overturn Planned Parenthood v. Casey and Roe v. Wade later this Summer. Although we must wait until an opinion is handed down to know the particular details of the decision, it is important to note that such a decision will mark an extremely important milestone in the fight to protect the Sanctity of Life.
It will also signal the opening of a major new battlefield in that critical fight. The decision will not, as some argue, end abortion as we know it. It will merely shift the fight from the federal courts to the states - meaning that we will have individual states enacting legislation governing abortions within their borders.
Such a decision will highlight the extreme importance of the 2022 election cycle in North Carolina. The North Carolina General Assembly will be called upon to enact legislation protecting the unborn in this state. Radical Progressive Activists will stop at nothing to stop pro-life legislation from being enacted - and will sue immediately if they cannot. The fight for the Sanctity of Life will be fought in Raleigh and other state capitals rather than in Washington, DC.
"I am proud of the work that I and thousands of Republican Activists across North Carolina have done for years to elect pro-life candidates to the Senate, Congress and the State Legislature," said NCGOP Chairman Michael Whatley. "But our work is hardly finished. The balance of the General Assembly and the Supreme Court in North Carolina has never been more important, and we will continue fighting from now through Election Day and beyond to ensure that we have pro-life majorities as we face a post-Roe future."
