Thousands gathered on Raleigh’s Bicentennial Mall Saturday cheering as Gov. Roy Cooper made good on his promise to veto Senate Bill 20, the restrictive abortion ban rushed through the Republican-controlled legislature with little public input and zero amendments. The governor will need at least one Republican to rethink their position in order to sustain his veto. The bill does not have the backing of the NC Medical Society. Read full coverage of the rally and the controversial legislation by NC Newsline reporter Lynn Bonner.
