RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper says he's decided to appeal a federal court ruling that struck down part of a law requiring abortion providers to describe an ultrasound to women seeking to terminate a pregnancy.

Cooper said Friday that the state will appeal the ruling even though he opposes laws like this one approved by the General Assembly in 2011. He says in a written statement that "legitimate constitutional questions remain that should be decided by a higher court."

Cooper is a Democrat. The Republican-led legislature passed the law requiring abortion providers to place an ultrasound image next to a pregnant woman so she can view it. The law directs the provider to describe its features and offer the patient the chance to listen to the heartbeat.

Nothing more.
Cooper gets to say he challenged the "liberal courts ruling" while maintaining a stance against the law.
I've got no problem with a little personal honesty here. I'm against abortion for religious purposes which makes it personal to me. But in our secular world I can see a need for this type of thing...
