    Raleigh, N.C. — Senators tacked a suite of new restrictions and regulations pertaining to abortion clinics onto a bill dealing with the application of foreign laws in North Carolina family courts Tuesday.

    The measure was unveiled unexpectedly during an unusual late-day committee meeting Tuesday. It combines several bills in different stages of the legislative process into one omnibus measure.

    "It just took a while for there to be a consensus of support for it within our caucus," said Sen. Buck Newton, R-Wilson, the chairman of the Judiciary 1 committee. "Sometimes these things come together at the last minute."

    They're doing it quietly on 4th of July weekend because they've seen what's going on in Texas and know that women will turn out," Melissa Reed, VP of Public Policy for Planned Parenthood Health Systems said, referring to the protests surrounding a similar bill in Texas. She said Planned Parenthood and other pro-choice advocates had no idea the measure would be taken up today.

    "Lets show the rascals what Citizens United really means."
