North Carolina TRAP Bill Heads to Governor's Desk
CNN: N.C. abortion bill passes Senate, heads to governor:
North Carolina's Senate passed a restrictive abortion bill Thursday, and it now heads to Gov. Pat McCrory, who is expected to sign it.
The bill was passed by North Carolina's House of Representatives this month.
The bill would place requirements on clinics that family planning advocates say would make it hard for them to stay in business. Among the requirements is the presence of a doctor when an abortion is being performed.
I was interviewed for a story about this bill in the Daily Tar Heel: Abortion bill battles heat up nationwide, by Tara Jeffries.
