RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Fiscal conservatives say they will find the additional cost to North Carolina taxpayers projected for added requirements before an abortion is performed.

The House budget-writing committee on Thursday approved legislation adding regulations that legislative fiscal analysts estimate would cost about $7 million a year.

The cost estimate says the majority of the spending would come from increased Medicaid bills for the 2,900 additional births per year. Analysts say nearly half the additional deliveries will be funded entirely or in part by the health program for the poor.

The state also would pay to maintain a website describing locations for pregnancy counseling centers. Costs also include printing literature in Spanish and English that explains details of the abortion process and describes the fetus at various stages of development.

This is an unprecedented assault on a woman’s right to choose. The are willing to fund unnecessary “regulations” when they are “fiscally Conservative.” That’s just code for HYPOCRITE!

More than worth the cost to allow these little ones to live……..as they grow up and make their own contribution to society and our culture.
