South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford has signed informed consent legislation which includes a 24-hour waiting period and gives women the option of viewing their ultrasound.

Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning has decided against appealing Nebraska's abortion screening law to a higher court after a U.S. District Court in Nebraska 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," she said. "Losing this case would require Nebraska 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 first 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.

Nim said the 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.
