Failed North Carolina abortion bill misleadingly shared online

Social media posts claim North Carolina legislators recently introduced a bill that would charge abortion seekers with first-degree murder and legalize violence against those who attempt to undergo or perform the procedure. This is misleading; while the bill is real, it was proposed in February 2021 and did not advance out of committee after receiving little support from state lawmakers.
