Consent

In light of the recent news concerning sexual harassment and the “me too” campaign, I think we should discuss North Carolina’s outdated consent law. Currently, North Carolina law states that women cannot legally revoke their consent to engage in sexual intercourse once that act has consensually begun. This makes us the only state in the country to not allow a woman to revoke consent at any point. Senator Jeff Jackson has proposed a bill twice to be able to fix our state law. Yet, it has yet to pass. THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE and I will do what I can to help it change if I am elected. A woman should be in control of her body and should never be forced to do anything she doesn’t want to happen. This shouldn’t have to be a fight, and yet, here we are. Let’s make this right and that starts by electing those who will make this a priority.
