About 60 abortion protesters rallied outside Democratic U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan’s Charlotte office Wednesday, hoping to influence not only North Carolina’sSenate election but control of the entire Senate.
The rally, on a South Boulevard sidewalk, was organized by a coalition of anti-abortion groups including the Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee and Family Research Council Action.
It’s part of what organizers call their “Summer of Life Campaign,” which features rallies in the home states of five vulnerable Democratic senators, including Hagan.
Organizers are rallying support for a bill known as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. It would ban abortions after 20 weeks.
“By turning a blind eye to this bill, Sen. Hagan proves that she is not only pro-abortion, she proves that she is anti-life,” said David Benham.
He and his twin brother, Jason, made national headlines when HGTV canceled their house-flipping show before it aired because of David Benham’s past comments on gay marriage and abortion.
A lone abortion-rights supporter stood nearby with her own sign.
