Since last month’s Legislative Briefing in Raleigh hosted by Concerned Women for America of North Carolina, House Bill 695, originally regarding the application of foreign law in state courts that passed the North Carolina House, has been amended in the Senate Judiciary Committee to include a host of pro-life and pro-family provisions.

Let me share with you in the briefest of terms what the bill does:
It prohibits the use of foreign law, such as Sharia law, from being applied in family court actions in North Carolina, if such action violates a person’s fundamental constitutional rights.
It expands conscience rights for people in the medical field who have moral or religious objections to participating in any procedure that may lead to an abortion.
It prohibits coverage for abortion in health plans offered through health care exchanges under “Obamacare,” albeit the usual provisions for rape and incest or the life of the mother.
It prohibits city and county governments from providing abortion coverage beyond what is provided by the State Health Plan for Teachers and State Employees.
It bars sex-selective abortions abortions performed simply because of the unborn child’s gender.
It requires that any time a surgical or chemical abortion is performed the doctor must be physically present for the full procedure.
To prevent Gosnell type violations in abortion clinics, the bill mandates that the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services produce regulations that ensure such clinics are similar to surgical ambulatory centers.
