Left Side of the Aisle #117 - Part 5

Update: Moral Monday

We've got a few updates on things we've talked about here before.

Last week, I mentioned the Moral Monday protests in North Carolina. They are still going on. This week, that is, July 15, more than 100 protesters, two-thirds of them women, were arrested for nonviolent civil disobedience in the 11th consecutive weekly rally. Over 800 have been arrested for civil disobedience so far.

This week, the turnout was partly prompted by another right wing attempt to restrict abortion rights. I mentioned last week that the GOPpers had with neither notice nor debate attached such restrictions to an "anti-Sharia law" bill; this week they did it again to a bill about motorcycle safety.

Gov. Pat McCrory has said he'll sign it despite a campaign promise to oppose any new abortion restrictions.
