North Carolina has passed a law banning most abortions after 12 weeks gestation, with the state’s Republican-majority Legislature overriding a veto by Democrat Gov. Roy Cooper.

The North Carolina General Assembly voted to override the governor’s veto on Senate Bill 20 on Tuesday, with the law scheduled to take effect on July 1. The House approved the override in a vote of 72-48 while the Senate approved the override in a vote of 30-20.

North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore released a statement Tuesday celebrating the veto override, referring to the new law as “meaningful, mainstream legislation.” (Excerpt from The Christian Post.)
