  • A bill that bans abortions after 12 weeks passed the NCGA this week. SB 20, which would make exceptions for rape, incest, life-threatening fetal anomalies, and medical emergencies, passed along party lines in the NC House on Wednesday (with newly Republican Rep. Tricia Cotham joining her Republican colleagues) and in the NC Senate on Thursday. The bill also adds new doctor’s visit requirements for obtaining abortion pills, rendering Planned Parenthood clinics operating in the state outside the new licensing requirements. While Governor Cooper said he will veto the bill, he likely does not have the votes to sustain a veto, though he and Democratic legislators are trying to find them.
