States with Restrictions on Post-Viability Abortions

reasons states permit third trimester abortions


restrictions on post-viability abortions

It should be noted that even in states where abortion is banned in the third trimester, loopholes in the law often allow these abortions to be performed anyway. Doe V Bolton, a companion case to Roe V Wade, mandated that a woman can’t be denied a third trimester abortion if her health is endangered by the pregnancy. It then went on, however, to define health broadly to include mental and emotional health. Therefore, all woman has to do to have a third trimester abortion is convince the abortionist that her mental or emotional health would be affected by the pregnancy. However, it is significant that many states have no laws on the books at all.
