“North Carolina Right to Life Inc. is very pleased to join National Right to Life in endorsing US Senator Thom Tillis in his reelection efforts to serve in the US Senate for a second term. As Speaker of the NC House, Thom Tillis worked tirelessly to ensure that the Woman’s Right to Know legislation became law over the veto of then Governor Bev Perdue. He supported all of North Carolina Right to Life’s efforts to pass pro-life legislation during his tenure as speaker and has never wavered in his commitment to the pro-life cause since serving in the US Senate. The pro-life people of NC must vote to make sure that North Carolina returns Senator Thom Tillis to the US Senate in 2020,” stated Barbara Holt, President of North Carolina Right to Life.

Current make-up in the NC General Assembly:
After the General Election on November 6, 2018, the NC General Assembly remains in the control of pro-life majorities, but those majorities are not a super majority needed to overcome Governor Cooper’s expected veto of pro-life legislation. In the US Congress, the Democrats have retaken the House, but the Senate still remains in the hands of the Republicans.
In NC, all 10 pro-life congressional candidates won their races. 9 incumbents were reelected with newly elected Mark Harris (R-9) [who defeated pro-life Robert Pittenger in the primary] besting Dan McCready (D). (NOTE: Recent election of Dan Bishop to fill the 9th CD).
The reelected pro-life incumbents are: George Holding (R-2), Walter Jones (R-3) (NOTE: Recent election of Greg Murphy to replace deceased Walter Jones), Virginia Foxx (R-5), Mark Walker (R-6), David Rouzer (R-7), Richard Hudson (R-8), Patrick McHenry (R-10), Mark Meadows (R-11), and Ted Budd (R-13).
