House Committee Votes on NC Anti-Abortion Bill


by Casie Kolbinsky

RALEIGH, N.C.--A State Senate house committee voted on the controversial North Carolina anti-abortion bill Tuesday morning in Raleigh.

Members of the committee voted Tuesday at about 10 a.m.

The Senate passed the anti-abortion bill last week with little public notice or input.

The bill requires abortion clinics to hold higher operating standards, such as those found at surgical centers. The bill also states a doctor must be present during the procedure and prohibits abortions based on the gender of the fetus.

Critics say the bill will shut down all abortion clinics across the state except for one in Asheville.
