McCrory signs 43 bills including abortion risks

Friday, July 19th, 2013

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory has signed into law a requirement teaching public school children there’s a link between abortion and pre-term births later in life.

The measure was among 43 bills McCrory signed Thursday.

One adds instruction about abortion risks to mandatory public health curriculum starting in seventh grade. The law says schools must teach preventable pre-term birth risk factors including induced abortion, smoking, alcohol and drug use among others. Bill opponents said there’s not clear scientific evidence linking abortion and later preterm birth.

McCrory also signed legislation that includes a constitutional amendment for voters to decide next year whether some criminal defendants should have the option to waive a jury trial.

Another new law places minimum fines on motorists convicted of passing a stopped school bus ferrying students.
