RALEIGH, N.C. —
Protesters rallying against the abortion bill are upset on Tuesday night over a plate of cookies.Gov. Pat McCrory delivered the plate of cookies to the demonstrators who spent the night in front of the governor's mansion.On their Facebook page Tuesday, they said they wanted women's health care, not cookies."All he said was,'God bless,' and he said that a few times and turned around, handed off the cookies and walked away," said Rene Godinez of Planned Parenthood."The least that he could have done is come out and directly answered some questions," said Jes Cromiller, abortions rights supporter. Protesters slipped the full plate back under the mansion's gate.The Governor's Office released a statement saying, "Sometimes a plate of cookies is just a plate of cookies."
