Lt. Governor Forest Confronts Media on Education Facts

Many news outlets erroneously claim that 14.8% of “teachers left the profession” this past school year. Upon the release of the NC Department of Public Instructions’ “Annual Report on Teachers Leaving the Profession” document in early October, Lieutenant Governor Forest decided to take a closer look at the facts.

 North Carolina Protects the Unborn

In an effort to eliminate the sale of unborn children body parts, the 2015 General Assembly passed House Bill 297. This legislation was later signed by Governor McCrory and made into law. Lieutenant Governor Forest released the following statement in support of this legislation:

“I applaud the efforts of many members of our General Assembly for putting forth House Bill 297. This bill will make it a criminal offense to sell body parts of aborted children and will make sure that no taxpayer dollars go to organizations that perform abortions. We have been outraged and heartbroken by the videos showing the systematic selling of the body parts of unborn children. Today, I stand with these General Assembly members and say ‘not here, not in North Carolina, and certainly not with our taxpayers’ money.’”
