North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory signed into law on Monday new requirements for clinics performing abortions, saying the measure added safety protections for women, after weeks of protests by abortion rights advocates who said the new rules would restrict access to the procedure.

The new law, passed in the waning days of North Carolina's legislative session in late July, places sweeping new restrictions on abortion clinics, including a requirement that doctors have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and be present when abortions are performed.
