RALEIGH, N.C (AP) — North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue has vetoed a bill requiring women considering an abortion in the state to get an ultrasound and wait 24 hours after mandated counseling before they could undergo the procedure.

The Democratic governor is an abortion-rights supporter and announced her decision on Monday.

The GOP-led General Assembly could try to override the measure next month.

Planned Parenthood and other groups had urged Perdue to block the measure. It said it needlessly intruded into the relationship between a doctor and a woman already making an informed decision.

Anti-abortion activists say the measure would ensure women make a fully informed decision before a weighty act.
