WRAL live coverage of Senate abortion law debate

The NC Senate takes up several issues in what could be the last day of the special session, including H854, which imposes a 24 hour waiting period and other restrictions and requirements on abortion.
It was just announced that Sen. Stan Bingham, who voted against the bill and was at the NCGA during the day, now has an excused absence. If he’s walked, it means the GOP probably has enough votes to override Governor Perdue’s veto. Twenty nine votes are needed.
