We’re delighted to join NARAL Pro-Choice America in honoring Rep. Alma Adams! Rep. Adams has spent nearly three decades fighting for women and families and, she helped lead the fight against the now-infamous “motorcycle safety” anti-abortion bill which the legislature rushed through at the last minute to bypass any opposition from pro-choice elected officials.
Rep. Adams had this to say about the bill she tried to stop:
“It’s about politics. It’s not about women’s health. It’s not about safety. . . As a woman, I am personally insulted by the maneuvers around getting this bill to the floor. We’ve made a mockery of women’s health and safety.”
State lawmakers like Rep. Adams truly represent the pro-choice majority, and they champion women’s reproductive rights in states like North Carolina that may need them the most.
