Women seeking abortions in North Carolina will be required to wait 24 hours and receive state-mandated counseling before a procedure.
The Republican-led Legislature completed its override Thursday of a measure vetoed by Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue.
The House agreed to the override earlier this week.
Half of all states require counseling and a waiting period for women seeking an abortion.
North Carolina's law will require that women get information about the likely stage of development of the unborn child, the medical risks of having an abortion and giving birth, and the availability of alternatives.
Perdue vetoed the bill because she said it obstructs the patient-doctor relationship.
Social conservatives praised the bill, which also requires a woman consider an offer to see the shape of the fetus and hear a heartbeat.
