Mark Robinson Wants to “Continue to Move the Ball” on Abortion Ban

In an interview yesterday, Lt. Governor Mark Robinson confirmed that he believes North Carolina’s extreme new abortion ban does not go far enough, saying that this dangerous and deeply unpopular law “gives ourselves the opportunity to set ourselves up to get ready to continue to move the ball” by banning abortion before most women even know they are pregnant.

None of this is new for Robinson. After facing broad backlash for promising to pass legislation to make sure women “can’t have an abortion in North Carolina for any reason” — including outlawing exceptions for victims of rape or incest — he now claims he is “not interested in talking about abortion anymore,” in a transparent attempt to conceal his dangerous agenda.“

Try as he might to stay quiet, Mark Robinson continues to find new ways to remind North Carolinians that he is a dangerous extremist who would jump at any opportunity to further gut women’s most fundamental rights,” said DGA Deputy Communications Director Izzi Levy. “With a position even more radical than the Republicans who passed this reckless ban, it’s no wonder Robinson says he doesn’t want to talk about abortion anymore.”
