‘Motorcycle Abortion Bill’ Passes

N.C. gov vows to sign new restrictions.

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory seems to be reneging on his campaign promise last year not to enact any new abortion legislation. McCrory said Friday that he intends to sign a series of new abortion restrictions that were tacked onto a motorcycle safety bill, which lawmakers passed late Thursday. The new law, which doesn’t cover health insurance for employees, stipulates that abortion clinics have facility standards like surgical centers. But only one out of 16 abortion clinics in the state currently meet those standards.
