The North Carolina state House has failed to override Governor Cooper’s veto on the state’s abortion bill.
The “Born-Alive Bill” will now not become law. The state Senate had voted to override the veto weeks ago, however, the House kept delaying votes through May as they tried to sway Democrats to give their support.
NC Senate Bill 359 abortion legislation focuses primarily on what happens to a child after they are born during a failed abortion. The bill would require doctors and nurses to protect and care for a child born during a failed late-term abortion.
