NC Bishops Seek Assistance with Textbook Issue

The North Carolina Bishops are requesting assistance with a proposeed insertion into the high school Civics and Economics textbook. As explained by the Raleigh Diocese:

The proposed text asserts that Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that legalized abortion and struck down state and federal laws that regulated and limited access to abortion, is an example of how the Supreme Court has upheld rights against oppressive government. The implication of this proposed text is that opposition to Roe v. Wade is wrong.

Use this form to provide feedback. [email protected]. (instructions on form) The deadline for comments has been extended to March 1.  While comments of NC residents are sought, the opinions of Constitutional law experts are particularly relevant.
