North Carolina's governor says he'll sign a bill that would make the state one of several with a 72-hour waiting period for abortions.
The state House gave final approval to the bill Wednesday, sending it to Republican Gov. Pat McCrory's desk.
McCrory issued a statement several hours later saying that he's pleased with how the bill developed in the legislature over the past few days.
The bill adds other rules for doctors and clinics that perform abortions and includes several unrelated criminal justice measures.
