ADF, allies seek to defend right of NC women to see ultrasound prior to abortion

ADF, Jubilee Campaign file motion to intervene in defense of state law being attacked by ACLU, Planned Parenthood

GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Alliance Defense Fund and the Jubilee Campaign’s Law of Life Project filed a motion to intervene in federal court Tuesday to defend a North Carolina ultrasound law against attack by the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood. The law requires abortionists to display to a woman an ultrasound image of her pre-born child prior to an abortion and also to offer the opportunity to hear the baby’s heartbeat.

ADF and allied attorneys represent several medical doctors, post-abortive women, and pregnancy resource centers who wish to intervene in the lawsuit to defend the right of women to be given all of the information they need to make an informed decision regarding her pregnancy.
