Paul Wright: End this American nightmare after 43 years

ABORTION--It's time to end this American nightmare. Congress can do this by simply limiting the appellate jurisdiction of the Federal courts (see the Exceptions Clause of Article III Section 2 of the Constitution). Congress has done this before and it can do it again. Its time to end the confusion, the misleading of the American people on this issue, 43 years is long enough.

Alma Adams: A free woman must own and control her own body

Alma Adams' support for women's reproductive rights is widely known throughout the district, the state and perhaps nationally. Alma has led the way as the key spokesperson in the NC General Assembly on this issue. She has been clear in all of her comments that women should make the choice about their body and that a woman cannot call herself free if she does not own and control her own body.
