Lawmakers made impassioned speeches at the General Assembly on Wednesday over a controversial social bill. Ultimately, Republican lawmakers failed to override Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper's veto of the "Born-Alive" Act. The legislation would have created a new crime against doctors and nurses who fail to care for an infant delivered during an unsuccessful abortion.

In our weekly review of state politics, Becki Gray, of the John Locke Foundation, and Rob Schofield, of NC Policy Watch, discuss the issue, its potential political repercussions, as well as the latest in a years-long redistricting battle.
