Attorney General Will Appeal Ultrasound Ruling
February 8, 2014
North Carolina Roy Cooper has announced that he will appeal the ultrasound ruling handed down by a federal court.
The ruling invalidated a portion of the 2011 Woman's Right to Know Act that requires abortion mills to show the ultrasound image, routinely gathered prior to surgery, to women seeking an abortion.
More than 1,200 Catholic Voice North Carolina participants contacted the Attorney General via email, asking him to appeal the ruling.
