North Carolina's McCrory Says He'll Reject Abortion Measure

Wednesday, 10 Jul 2013 10:14 AM

 

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory said he would veto legislation imposing new restrictions on abortion clinics unless “significant changes” are made to the measure.

The bill requiring abortion clinics to meet hospital-like standards passed the state Senate on July 3. A House committee heard testimony yesterday without acting.

The proposal is similar to restrictions already approved or under consideration in other Republican-led state legislatures. The Texas legislature is debating a similar measure.

In an e-mailed statement today, Republican McCrory didn’t specify which changes he wanted in the measure. Both chambers of the legislature are dominated by Republicans.

“The governor believes that major portions of the bill are of sound principle and value,” according to the statement from his office.
