Pat McCrory is the Republican governor of North Carolina. During the debates in the run-up to his election, he made a one word statement when asked if he would sign into law new abortion restrictions. He said “No.”
That is why a number of people were hopeful that when the North Carolina legislature came up with some of the most restrictive laws on reproductive rights and tacked them on to a motorcycle safety bill, he would veto it.
Well, of course he will sign it. What made you think he wouldn’t?
