North Carolina Will Appeal Ruling on Pre-Abortion Ultrasound Mandate

News & Observer: Attorney general says North Carolina will appeal abortion ultrasound ruling, by Craig Jarvis:

Attorney General Roy Cooper said Friday that the state will appeal a federal judge’s ruling that strikes down the narrated ultrasound provision of an abortion-regulation bill.

“While I oppose laws like this that force the state into women’s medical decisions, the state will appeal this ruling because legitimate constitutional questions remain that should be decided by a higher court,” Cooper said in a statement his office released. “It is the duty of the Office of Attorney General to defend state laws regardless of whether I agree with them.” . . .
