NC Legislative Leaders File Motion to Intervene in Abortion Lawsuit

Today legislative leaders filed a motion to intervene in Bryant v. Stein to defend the state’s pro-life laws following Attorney General Josh Stein’s refusal to represent the state. Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) and House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) released the following joint statement:

“North Carolina‚Äôs reasonable restrictions on chemical abortions are designed to protect women, plain and simple. However, the Attorney General has made it abundantly clear that when faced with the opportunity to uphold his oath or advance his political career, he will pick his career every time. Since Attorney General Stein won’t do the job he was elected to do, legislative leaders will intervene in this case to defend our state’s pro-life laws.”
