The Jesse Helms of the Legislature

Record #:
Wake County Republican Paul “Skip” Stam, Jr. is sponsoring the Abortion Control Act. If Roe v. Wade is overturned and the NC bill passes, Stam will be given credit for the action which limits the right to abortions in the state of North Carolina. The former attorney and head of Wake County’s Right to Life chapter is an expert in reproductive freedom and related laws in NC. Surprisingly, he is unlike most other conservatives and has voted to increase spending, is opposed tax cuts, and supports the rights of workers. However, this has not stopped him from being labeled the “Jesse Helms of the Legislature” by opponents.
