On May 2, Politico published a leaked draft U.S Supreme Court opinion for Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. If finalized, the opinion would overturn Roe v. Wade. North Carolina has a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy that is currently unenforceable under Roe v. Wade, according to a 2021 U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling. But, if Roe v. Wade is overturned, access in North Carolina could be restricted. Even if abortion remains legal in North Carolina, an individual from a state with a "trigger law" who needs an abortion may travel to North Carolina. This could overburden N.C.'s health system.
