Judge blocks 2 provisions in North Carolina’s new abortion law; 12-week near-ban remains in place

  • A federal judge in North Carolina has blocked two portions of a new abortion law, including a provision that required surgical abortions after 12 weeks to be performed in hospitals rather than clinics.
  • The lawsuit challenging the law did not seek to overturn the entire abortion law, but rather focused on specific sections. The restrictions on abortions after 12 weeks, including exceptions for cases of rape, incest, and fetal anomalies, remain in place.
  • The judge's ruling recognized that the law's requirements could subject abortion providers to claims of breaking the law if they are unable to locate an embryo through an ultrasound due to the early stage of the pregnancy. Abortion-rights advocates praised the ruling as a victory for reproductive health care.
