Do me a favor and listen to this brief (less than 15 minutes) podcast. You won't regret it.
Bill introduced in North Carolina, if a woman has an abortion, she will be sentenced to death. If she isn’t successful, they will jail the woman until she has the baby .

This is the closest thing I could find, filed last year by Pittman:
"Sec. 39. Life begins at fertilization. It is a matter of indisputable scientific fact that a distinct and separate human life begins at the moment of fertilization. As such, that new human life is recognized by the State as an individual person, entitled to the protection of the laws of this State from the moment of fertilization until the moment of natural death. Any person who willfully seeks to destroy the life of another person, by any means, at any stage of life, or succeeds in doing so, shall be held accountable for attempted murder or for first degree murder, respectively. Any person has the right to defend his or her own life or the life of another person, even by the use of deadly force if necessary, from willful destruction by another person. The State has an interest and a duty to defend innocent persons from willful destruction of their lives and to punish those who take the lives of persons, born or unborn, who have not committed any crime punishable by death."
a) it's a Constitutional Amendment, meaning it would have to go before the voters. b) 1st Degree Murder could carry the death penalty, but all it takes in 1 juror to say, "Oh, hell no." We've got more important things to do than chase Pittman's tail.
At a time when North Carolinians are struggling to put food on the table for their families, corporations are making record profits.
That’s not right – and the Senate should hold corporations accountable for price gouging.

What Cheri said. This ain't inflation, it's piracy.
"If there is any single driver of American politics today, it’s division. Both sides are guilty... Instead of settling old scores, conservative candidates should focus more on pragmatic policy-focused campaigning." - @tannernau15#ncga #ncpolhttps://t.co/4nXx8XZ7Dm

Policy? Open their bag, there's nothing in there, except rotten tomatoes to throw at Democrats' ideas.
In 2012, Pat Michaels (1950-2022) warned @CarolinaJournal about the links between global warming alarmism and the "government-scientific complex." #ncpol https://t.co/ONzUd2vKLw https://t.co/5GlisAvnDK

My god, you really are an idiot.
I dunno man, he has been a far better man than you can ever imagine being. @jdanbishop you have been little more than a #constitutionalclown embarrassing #ncpol when you worked there costing #nc billions on your stupid bathroom bill. Now go sit back in the corner.

You got that right, wolfie. Bishop is an oxygen thief.
Okay, this post was considerably longer before I accidentally CLOSED THE TAB and had to start over, but there's something to be said for brevity (yes, that's an excuse). Here's your Onion:

Yeah, that's...not really...
