Gov. Pat McCory announced he has signed the 72 hour wait for abortion bill on June 6. According to WXII news: “The abortion bill requires women to talk to a doctor or other qualified professional 72 hours before having an abortion, unless there’s a medical emergency. The bill adds other rules for doctors and clinics that perform abortions and includes several unrelated criminal justice measures.”
The section of the HB 465 that changes this are specifically found in SECTION 7.(b) G.S. 90-21.82 reads as rewritten: “§ 90-21.82. Informed consent to abortion.
This appears to be another small victory in helping those seeking to kill their unborn child more time to think and make and informed choice before doing so.
