Contributing sentiments towards policy:

51% : The current overarching law on abortion in North Carolina (§ 14-45.1) allows for abortions in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy in any hospital or clinic certified by the state for that procedure.
49% : After the well-publicized leak of a draft decision from the U.S. Supreme Court, it appears a majority of the court could overturn the current federal precedent -- as laid out in Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
46% : Planned Parenthood South Atlantic and Women's March are holding events in many cities across the state on the same day, saying, "On May 2nd, we learned from a leaked draft opinion that SCOTUS is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, stripping the constitutional right to abortion in spite of fifty years of precedent. ...
45% : Since then, states could not place an "undue burden" on women's access to abortion until viability.
44% :Democrat Governor Roy Cooper has a history of vetoing pro-life bills.
43% : Working under this limited framework, North Carolina still passed a long list of laws regulating abortion.
43% : On the opposing side of Rustin and North Carolina's pro-life movement, there is also a lot of energy from pro-choice groups in the state.
42% : In an article published last week, Cooper told Axios he plans to make abortion a focus of the mid-term elections in November.
38% : Marches are planned in virtually all major cities over the next few weeks, demanding that access to abortion not be limited in the event of Roe and Casey being overturned.
28% : But in March 2019, U.S. District Judge William Osteen ruled that this law, virtually banning abortion after 20 weeks, violated the federal Casey precedent that no undue burdens be placed on women's access to abortion before the child is viable outside the womb.
