McCrory wants more debate on NC abortion bill

Published 12:00 am Monday, July 8, 2013

RALEIGH (AP) — Gov. Pat McCrory says he wants legislators to take a closer look at abortion rules in North Carolina before acting further on legislation that would place higher standards upon clinics.
The governor told reporters at a news conference Monday that he wants the House to debate further a version of a bill hastily moved through the Senate before the long July 4 holiday. A House committee meeting is scheduled Tuesday.
McCrory didn’t say specifically what he’d do if the current bill came to his desk. McCrory said last fall he didn’t want to sign legislation that creates additional abortion restrictions.
He says there’s a fine line between restrictions and protecting the health of women and suggested current clinic rules should be reviewed to see if they’re reasonable and being enforced.
