Post-Viability Abortion Restriction

California's post-viability restriction states that an abortion may be provided after viability only if in the good-faith medical judgment of the physician, the continuation of the pregnancy poses a risk to the woman's life or health.  Cal. Health & Safety Code § 123464 (Enacted 2002; Last Amended 2003); Cal. Health & Safety Code §§123466-123468 (Enacted 2002).

NARAL Pro-Choice America supports the legal framework established in Roe v. Wade and does not oppose restrictions on post-viability abortion, such as California's, that contain adequate exceptions to protect the woman's life and health.
