Contributing sentiments towards policy:

41% : "The prohibition of qualified advanced practice clinicians providing medication abortion is completely arbitrary, medically unnecessary, and profoundly limits access to abortion in North Carolina," said Anne Logan Bass, a nurse practitioner at Planned Parenthood South Atlantic in a news release.
41% : In North Carolina, abortion is legal up to 20 weeks of pregnancy.
38% : "Let's be clear: Abortion is still legal in North Carolina, but a politically motivated abortion restriction has created an insurmountable barrier for too many pregnant people in the state and across the region," said Monica Simpson, executive director of SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective.
34% : Abortion restrictions across the South are leading to an overburdened system, and delays accessing abortion in states where abortion is legal, according to a court case in North Carolina this week.
32% : Though APCs are currently allowed to prescribe the medications for a miscarriage, they are prohibited from prescribing them for abortion, known as the "APC ban.""This, in turn, has exacerbated the long wait times experienced by North Carolinians seeking abortion -- forcing them to remain pregnant against their will for longer periods, potentially pushing them past the gestational age limit for a medication abortion, and more," Planned Parenthood said in the motion.
27% : Planned Parenthood claimed that since the Dobbs decision, more patients from neighboring states that have banned abortion have flocked to North Carolina seeking an abortion, causing longer delays for abortion access.
