Update: Teachers may soon have to explain abortion to 7th graders

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

A bill requiring North Carolina teachers to teach 7th graders that abortions put women at greater risk for premature births later on passed the House.

The bill passed mostly along party lines, but Democrats did win a small battle. They successfully added an amendment to call abortion a "risk" rather than a "cause" of premature births.

The bill also passed in the Senate. They'll have to approve the House's changes before the bill lands on Governor McCrory's desk.
