North Carolina Governor Vetoes Ultrasound Abortion Bill
Reuters: North Carolina governor vetoes abortion bill, by Ned Barnett:
North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue on Monday vetoed legislation calling for a 24-hour waiting period before an abortion.
The legislation also required medical personnel to present to patients an ultrasound image of the fetus along with information about possible risks.
"This bill is a dangerous intrusion into the confidential relationship that exists between women and their doctors," the Democratic governor said in a statement. . . .
