Abortion laws call for change in Triangle clinics, schools


A new law is now holding abortion clinics in North Carolina to higher, more difficult standards, but so far the Triangle has not been negatively affected by it.The law—Senate Bill 353—states that clinics performing abortions will now be held to similar standards as outpatient surgical centers. It also prevents government insurance plans from paying for the procedure, and prohibits abortions motivated by the sex of the unborn fetus. SB 353 will go into effect October 1.“The new rules haven’t been written yet so all clinics still abide by the current rules and regulations,” said Kristi Clifford, press assistant at the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.Five abortion clinics currently operate within the Triangle area, with two in Raleigh and three in Chapel Hill: A Preferred Women’s Health, A Woman’s Choice of Raleigh, Easton OB/GYN, Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina and Women’s Health Alliance Durham.
