Hearing on North Carolina ultrasound law to be held today

A judge in Greensboro will today hear a lawsuit filed against North Carolina’s ultrasound law. The law requires women to hear a description of ultrasound images in detail four hours before having an abortion, even if the woman does not want to see the images.

The American Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU of North Carolina Legal Foundation, Planned Parenthood Health Systems, Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina and the Center for Reproductive Rights filed the lawsuit challenging the measure. They allege “the new law violates the rights of health care providers and women seeking abortions.”

According to the Associated Press:

Lawyers for the state and abortion rights groups representing several doctors are expected to make arguments Monday in a Greensboro courtroom.

The physicians sued last month, saying the new law requiring ultrasounds and other information for women planning to have an abortion violates the rights of doctors and the patients who are constitutionally protected to undergo the procedure. They want a temporary restraining order and permanent injunction to suspend the law’s enforcement starting this month.

Both Florida and Texas passed ultrasound bills this past legislative session. Florida has avoided a legal challenge to its mandatory ultrasound bill because it included an opt-out provision. In Florida, women can bypass a description or viewing of the ultrasound by signing a form. However, ultrasounds are still required, whether or not they are medically necessary, before every abortion.
