NC Abortion Bill Getting More Discussion In House
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — An abortion bill that cleared the North Carolina Senate after complaints it got approved with little public input is getting what’s being labeled by House Republicans as a full discussion before a decision its future.
The House Health Care Committee scheduled debate Tuesday on the measure, which in part would require abortion clinics to meet regulations similar to those for ambulatory surgery centers. Abortion rights groups say the requirement could force clinics to close. Bill supporters say it would ensure clinics are safe for women.
The full House must decide whether to accept the Senate’s version or try to forge a compromise with the Senate.
Gov. Pat McCrory said Monday he wants further discussion and debate about some provisions he said appear to restrict abortion access.
