  • SC Gov. Mark Sanford has signed informed consent legislation which includes a 24-hour waiting period and gives women the option of viewing their ultrasound.
  • NE Attorney General Jon Bruning has decided against appealing NE’s abortion screening law to a higher court after a U.S. District Court in NE ruled the law unconstitutional:

    It is evident from the judge’s ruling (to temporarily block the law from taking effect) that LB594 will ultimately be found unconstitutional,” [spokeswoman Shannon Kingery] said. “Losing this case would require NE taxpayers to foot the bill for Planned Parenthood’s legal fee.

    We will not squander the state’s resources on a case that has very little probability of winning.”

    Lead sponsor Cap Dierks plans on reworking some of the language and reviving the legislation.

  • In the Philippines, an 8-month aborted child was found in grassy lot on a college campus:
  • During the investigation, the mother of the aborted infant, a 1st year college student, reportedly claimed that she herself performed the abortion and left the child to die for fear of being rejected or disowned by her family.

    … [T]he mother delivered the baby in the dormitory before dawn on Tuesday. She then reportedly left the baby at the back of the Agriculture building which was near their dorm.
