North Carolina politicians cave to corporate, NCAA bullies in repeal of HB2


Thursday, March 30, 2017

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Counsel Kellie Fiedorek regarding the North Carolina Legislature’s vote Thursday to repeal the state’s student privacy law, known as HB2:

“Sadly, North Carolina has failed families by giving in to hypocritical bullies like the NCAA and billion-dollar corporations. Every North Carolinian deserves to have their privacy respected in intimate settings like locker rooms and restrooms. One of government's essential duties is to protect the citizens it governs, not to create uncertainty about whether showers and locker rooms will still be safe for women and girls. North Carolina's economy is booming, so the state should not let the NCAA and others dictate the state’s policies and sell out their citizens’ interests based on flat-out lies about an economic doomsday that never happened.”
