Woman’s Right to Know veto is overrided
    August 5 2011 by BR staff

    The North Carolina Senate and House voted to override Governor Bev Perdue’s veto of a bill requiring a 24-hour waiting period for women considering abortions.

    The Woman’s Right to Know Act, which now becomes law, was vetoed by Gov. Perdue more than a month ago. But both the House and Senate rallied to override the veto in the latest legislative sessions.

    The bill requires state-mandated counseling before women opt for abortions and ensures the women receive information from doctors about adoption and other alternatives.

    Ruth Samuelson, one of the bill’s sponsors, tweeted July 26 about the House’s override of Perdue’s veto. “Thanks for everyone’s prayers,” she said. She updated her followers July 28 when the Senate also overrode the veto.
