Planned Parenthood http://wunc.org en New Abortion Law Faces Federal Lawsuit http://wunc.org/post/new-abortion-law-faces-federal-lawsuit <p>Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union are among several groups who filed a federal lawsuit today opposing new restrictions on abortions in North Carolina. The new state law requires women undergo specific counseling, view an ultrasound, and wait 24 hours before having an abortion. The groups argue that violates the free speech and due process rights of health care providers and women seeking abortions.
