Contributing sentiments towards policy:

62% : With the reinstatement of this ban, abortions beyond 20 weeks are only permitted in cases of a "medical emergency," as defined by anti-abortion politicians, not medical providers.
50% : With a ban on abortion after 20 weeks now in place (in August, a federal court ordered the reinstatement of a law that had been enjoined until the Supreme Court's decision reversing Roe v. Wade was handed down) patients in North Carolina who need this crucial, time-sensitive care will now have to travel out of state -- which will result in added time, costs, increased safety risks, and unnecessary delays in care -- or be forced to carry a pregnancy against their will.
49% : Like all medical matters, decisions regarding abortion should be made only by patients in consultation with their physicians and health care professionals.
44% : A second factor could include barriers that have delayed accessing reproductive healthcare, such as lack of insurance coverage for abortion, little access to medical providers or resources, or the need to take time off from work and travel a long distance for medical care.
