Davis: Lawsuit Challenges Abortion Restrictions in North Carolina

A lawsuit filed by the Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina along with abortion providers and reproductive justice organizations is challenging five medically unnecessary restrictions on abortion passed over the years.  The suit was filed in Wake County Superior Court. These restrictions have pushed abortion out of reach in N.C. and have stigmatized essential health care. The suit holds that the restrictions deny basic rights guaranteed under the North Carolina Constitution  and disproportionately impact communities of color, especially Black communities, along with rural communities.
