North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory can’t keep his word. During his 2012 campaign, he said he would not sign any additional abortion restrictions into law, only to turn around in 2013 and do just that. Now, McCrory has announced that he will sign a bill with some of the state’s most extreme restrictions yet. The legislation will extend the 24-hour waiting period for abortions to 72 hours and give the state government access to women’s ultrasounds and private medical records. McCrory’s latest betrayal is an egregious overstep of government control into one of the most private aspects of a woman’s life.
