Under DEMOCRATIC control in the NC Legislature (1977)-amended in 1994, please see the referenced link depicting the requirements in North Carolina administrative rules already directing abortion clinics to perform ultrasounds for any patient who is scheduled to have an abortion. Hospitals that may perform abortions must meet standards of care that would include some medical method to determine the gestational age, according to the state Department of Health and Human Services. This section applies to abortion clinics and specifically states: “an ultrasound examination shall be performed and the results posted in the patient’s medical record for any patient who is scheduled for an abortion procedure.”
