A federal judge has overruled a North Carolina law protecting unborn babies from abortion starting at the 20th week of pregnancy. U.S. District Judge William Osteen’s ruling Monday gives state legislators 60 days to amend the law or appeal his ruling. The measure, passed in 2016, included exceptions for mothers who faced a risk of death or serious and irreversible harm if the pregnancy continued.
