Federal Court Blocks Provision in S.B. 20 as North Carolina Abortion Providers Prepare for Ban to Go Into Effect
Today marks one year since the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which allowed state lawmakers to ban abortion and stripped tens of millions of people of the right to make their own personal medical decisions.

Today, 1 in 3 women — and more transgender and non-binary people — live in a state without access to abortion.
Today, the North Carolina legislature advanced two bills that ban or severely restrict gender-affirming care for anyone under 18, including hormone therapy. Senate Bill 631 bans the provision of gender-affirming care for minors by public health care facilities, their affiliates, or any providers who contract with public health care facilities. In a similar move, House Bill 808 was amended today to prevent health care providers from providing gender-affirming health care, including gender-affirming hormone therapy, to anyone under the age of 18, with very limited exceptions.
