Raleigh, NC –– Planned Parenthood South Atlantic released the following statement regarding the proposed “repeal” of HB 2 --- which would instead allow for more discrimination in North Carolina. The so-called repeal legislation specifically blocks cities from passing laws to protect transgender people from accessing facilities in accordance with their gender identity, and prohibits municipalities from enacting any other LGBTQ non-discrimination protections.

Quote from Paige Johnson, Vice President of External Affairs, Planned Parenthood South Atlantic:  

“To be clear: This bill does nothing to protect transgender people in North Carolina from discrimination. Instead, this bill makes it illegal for cities in North Carolina to pass laws protecting transgender people and the LGBTQ community from discrimination.

“At Planned Parenthood, we value the safety of everyone and know that reproductive rights are deeply connected to the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. We believe that transgender people, like everyone else, must be treated with dignity and respect, and be free from discrimination and harm. This bill fails to protect North Carolinians from discrimination on all accounts. That’s why we’re calling on Governor Cooper to veto this bill.”
