North Carolina Has No Future Now With Nick Jonas & Demi Lovato! They Cancelled Their Tour Stops Because Of That Anti-LGBTQ Law!

Way to go, you two!

Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato have decided to cancel their upcoming tour stops in North Carolina.

The pop powerhouses were supposed to play shows in both Raleigh and Charlotte, but have decided to pull the plug on those performances because of the state's anti-LGBTQ legislation.

About a month ago, Governor Pat McCrory signed House Bill 2, which states that local cities and towns can no longer create their own rules banning discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

HB2 also says that transgender individuals must use the bathrooms that match the "biological sex" on their birth certificates in public schools, government agencies, and public college campuses.

In light of this terrible piece of legislation, the musicians announced on Monday that their Honda Civic Tour: Future Now will not be stopping in NC, sharing their joint statement on Instagram.

Texas Passes House Bill 2 To Place Strict Regulations On Abortions

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikSad Sad

texas passes bill to put strict regulations on abortions

The state of Texas has just put the final approval on House Bill 2, which will ban abortions at 20 weeks and put some of the strictest regulations on abortion clinics and facilities in the entire country.

The House voted 98-49 to pass the Bill by a huge margin, and it must be approved once more at a later date to move on to the Senate.

Supporters of the Bill argue that it will help protect women and their unborn children while those opposed to it say it will make it nearly impossible for women to get treatment and force them to seek "black market" alternatives.
