RALEIGH, N.C. (WITN) - Three Republican members of the North Carolina House of Representatives filed a bill Wednesday that they say is aimed at protecting the sanctity of human life.

Representative Keith Kidwell who represents Beaufort County joined representatives Ben Moss and Ed Goodwin to file house bill 533. If passed, the bill, which is called the Human Life Protection Act of 2023, would prohibit abortion after conception except in cases where it is necessary to preserve the mother’s life.

The bill was filed with the House Principal Clerk’s office on Wednesday and is scheduled to be read on the House floor on Thursday before being assigned to any required committees for consideration.
