In a guest post, a group of 8 UNC doctors, professors, and researchers highlight the dangerous impact of North Carolina Republicans' new 12-week abortion ban. "The legislation imposes an array of medically unnecessary hurdles ... that make it harder and more expensive for women to get early abortions," the group writes.

Three GOP lawmakers introduced a bill this week banning abortion at conception. Though it is unlikely to even get a vote as written, it is the opening salvo in what's expected to be a fierce fight to drastically restrict abortion access here.
