The North Carolina Senate on Thursday approved a 12-week ban on abortion, setting up a likely veto from Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper after the House approved the measure on Wednesday.

The upper chamber voted 29-20 to approve the ban, the New York Times reported. The Old North State currently bars abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Cooper has called the measure “extreme” and is likely to veto the measure, which will be a test of the Republicans’ newfound supermajorities should they seek to override it. (Excerpt from Just the News.)
