RALEIGH - Time is running out for state lawmakers who are hoping to wrap up this year’s legislative session by the end of the week.
A lot of legislation is moving through both chambers at a fast pace, but lawmakers said it’s necessary to see this session come to an end.
A highly debated bill to ban the sale of fetal tissue in North Carolina now heads to Governor Pat McCrory's desk for approval.
This bill comes after a national debate on controversial videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing this practice.
The state house debated the measure Monday afternoon questioning if the ban is needed since there's no evidence it happens here.
The bill also contains a provision that would ban state dollars from going to agencies providing teen pregnancy prevention programs.
Planned Parenthood supporters will gather at the legislative building in Raleigh at 11 a.m. Tuesday for a national “Pink Out” rally to draw attention to women’s health.
The Raleigh event is one of nearly 100 rallies across the country.
The goal is to collect more than 2 million signatures nationwide of people in support of Planned Parenthood to show lawmakers.
This comes as the organization makes its first congressional appearance Tuesday since the release of those undercover videos.
The Planned Parenthood rally in Raleigh is the only one taking place in North Carolina Tuesday.
