Abortion Bill On It’s Way To N.C. Governor’s Desk
N.C. Governor, Roy Cooper, has vowed to veto the bill calling it, "an unacceptable attack on the women of our state."
A measure regarding abortion in North Carolina is now on it’s way to the governor’s desk.
On Wednesday the N.C. House passed the ban that would prohibit nearly all abortions after 12 weeks of pregnancy, which is down from the current 20 weeks. On Thursday, the Senate passed the measure with a vote of 29-20.
N.C. Governor, Roy Cooper, has vowed to veto the bill calling it, “an unacceptable attack on the women of our state.” However, GOP seat margins and assurances from chamber leaders, indicate a veto will likely be overridden.
The ban is one of many bills Republican-led assemblies have pushed through since last year’s overturning of Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court.
