Thom Tillis, Senator from North Carolina

Sen. Thom Tillis wants to see your basic freedoms and rights taken away. Reproductive health care, including abortion, has been systematically whittled away in North Carolina because of politicians like Thom Tillis who put party and their own self interests over people — no matter who loses their health care.

How Thom Tillis Is Hurting Your Health Care

  • He opposes safe, legal abortion. In early 2020, he joined his most extreme Republican colleagues and asked the Supreme Court to consider overturning Roe v. Wade. This is only one recent  examples of Tillis's longtime oppostion to safe, legal abortion. He’s so obsessed with cutting abortion access that he once tried to sneak in abortion restrictions to totally unrelated legislation on motorcycle safety in the North Carolina state legislature.

  • He consistently puts health care at risk. Sen. Thom Tillis has repeatedly voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act and “defund” Planned Parenthood. In 2018, he joined his colleagues in support of allowing states to deny Planned Parenthood health centers critical funding, which could put reproductive health care services for North Carolinians in jeopardy.

  • He doesn’t believe survivors. During then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation proceedings, Tillis called for an investigation into Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony in an attempt to discredit her and defend Kavanaugh against multiple sexual assault allegations. 

Bottom Line:
Thom Tillis is a self-serving politician who continues to attack the rights and health care of North Carolinians.
