Federal Judge Ends North Carolina Abortion Ban

According to Reuters, A U.S. federal court struck down North Carolina’s decades-old ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, saying any “week- or event-specific” abortion ban is unconstitutional.

The law, which took effect in 1973, only allowed an abortion after 20 weeks in the case of a medical emergency.

Abortion-rights groups sued in 2016 after the health exception was further narrowed.
