“We applaud the 10 Republican Members of North Carolina’s Congressional District who have signed on as co-sponsors of H.R. 36. We are especially grateful to Congresswoman Renee Ellmers and Congresswoman Virginia Foxx who continue to be strong and unwavering female voices in support of women and their unborn children.”
