The House of Representatives has given provisional approval to tough new abortion restrictions.
The measure passed by a vote of 98-49 on Tuesday night before the house adjourned for the night.

House Bill 2 would restrict abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and require all abortions to be performed in a surgical center. Surgical centers must also be located within 30 miles of a hospital.
A final vote is scheduled to happen at 10 Wednesday morning.
