North Carolina governor signs into law new abortion clinic standards

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.
