- North Carolina’s Democratic Attorney General, Josh Stein, won’t defend current state restrictions on abortion pills being currently contested by a January lawsuit seeking broader access to the medication, according to the Associated Press.
- Stein cited Food and Drug Administration regulations that protect abortion pill access and trump the state’s law, according to the AP, leaving Republican lawmakers, who control both chambers of the state legislature, to defend against the lawsuit aimed at blocking the state’s restrictions.
- Current North Carolina laws require the pills to be dispensed only after mandatory counseling and a 72-hour waiting period, according to the AP.
