RALEIGH, N.C. - North Carolina State Representatives Paul “Skip” Stam (Rep.) and Rick Glazier (Dem.) participated in a robust discussion on abortion at Campbell Law School on Wednesday, Oct. 23. Rep. Stam, who serves as Speaker Pro Tempore, and Rep. Glazier, who teaches at the law school as an adjunct faculty member, discussed N.C. Senate Bill 353 / S.L. 2013-366, which passed over the summer. The two offered opposing views on the law’s purpose, impact throughout the state, and its Constitutional implications.
“I wanted the students to see the actual provisions of the bill so that they can judge for themselves, and I think they now see what the bill does,” said Rep. Stam.
“I think we were trying to create both a sense of what the legislative process was, what the bill encompassed, and to really help educate students and let them think about both sides of the issue,” said Glazier.
The event, entitled “On Privacy & Safety: A Discussion on Abortion in North Carolina,” was organized and orchestrated by the Campbell Law Federalist Society and Women in Law student organizations. A capacity crowd of nearly 200 members of the Campbell Law community and area citizens attended the discussion.
“Campbell Law stands as the only law school in our state’s capital city, so it makes perfect sense for conversations and debates of this level of importance to take place on our campus,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. “We are thankful to both Rep. Glazier and Rep. Stam for their willingness to embrace our law school community and explain their opposing views.”
