North Carolina lawmakers approved a sweeping abortion bill in July 2013 that would impose stricter regulations on abortion clinics, require more contact between abortion clinic doctors and patients, and limit insurance coverage for the procedure.
While campaigning for governor last fall, Gov. Pat McCrory said he would not support any new restrictions on abortions. He recently said the House bill satisfies the safety concerns of the medical professionals in his administration while not further restricting access. - News Observer
