A new North Carolina law went into effect on Jan. 1 that requires doctors who perform a legal abortion after the 16th week of pregnancy to provide the State Department of Health and Human Services with an ultrasound of the fetus. The law has sparked controversy, and even Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has weighed in on the issue...
Clinton's director of women’s outreach, Mini Timmaraju, slammed Republican Gov. Pat McCrory of North Carolina on Jan. 4 for allowing the law to go into effect, according to The News & Observer:
It’s shameful that Governor McCrory has decided to disregard the sanctity of a woman’s relationship with her doctor by allowing this new law to go into effect requiring government review of women’s personal medical information.
As President, Hillary Clinton will fight to protect women’s health and reproductive rights while ensuring the government does not get between a woman and her doctor. Governor McCrory should suspend this outrageous law immediately.
