RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Abortion-right advocates remain suspicious of North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory about protecting access to the procedure and want him to know they’re still watching his actions.

The activists say they’ll deliver Tuesday to McCrory’s office a petition telling him he should stop enacting what they call unnecessary barriers to safe and legal abortions. The state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union is assembling the event.

Since taking office, McCrory has signed laws extending the abortion waiting period from one to three days and directing the state Department of Health and Human Services update abortion clinic regulations. Another law he signed directed physicians who perform certain later-term abortions to send ultrasound images to state officials.
