When he was running for governor of North Carolina, Republican Pat McCrory was asked in a debate what additional restrictions on abortion he would sign. He replied “None.”
Typical guy, telling women what they wanted to hear so he could get what he wanted, and he won.
McCrory has now signed a law that probably will close 15 of North Carolina’s 16 clinics that perform abortions.
Would he have won if he’d answered honestly during that debate? We’ll never know, but he certainly didn’t seem to think so.
I hope that McCrory is never elected to anything ever again, and that women not just in North Carolina, but all across the country, learn the lesson not to trust GOPers bearing reproductive rights.
