Press Release: NCGOP Statement on Court Decision to Reinstate NC Regulations on Abortion After 20 Weeks of Pregnancy

NC Judge Confirms Constitutionality of Law on Abortion After Five Months


August 18, 2022
For Immediate Release

RALEIGH, N.C. – North Carolina law protecting an unborn child after 20 weeks of pregnancy is reasonable, supported by a majority of North Carolinians, and it is Constitutional. Judge Osteen's decision this week makes that clear.

Most people agree there should be reasonable limits to protect the health and safety of women and their unborn children. In North Carolina, a clear majority support the established law placing such a limitation at 20 weeks, after roughly five months of pregnancy in which babies in the womb are already sucking their thumb.

This decision is a win for life and the Rule of Law, and it comes despite N.C. Attorney General Josh Stein refusing to do his job. Stein worked to undermine the defense of this established law, contrary to his duty as attorney general and the will of the people. 

Democrats have adopted the radical of position demanding abortion with no limits up until the moment of birth and that extremist position is out of touch with North Carolinians. Voters will reinforce that fact at the ballot box in November.
