Hundreds rally in Raleigh against anti-abortion laws

Hundreds of people in Raleigh and Durham, North Carolina, have rallied against restrictive anti-abortion laws in Texas. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Saturday that the protest was organized by a coalition of local advocacy groups. The Texas law, which was passed in May and went into effect in September, prohibits abortions after a fetal “heartbeat” is detected — as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to block the law. The court will hear oral arguments for another major abortion case in December.
