Freedom of Choice Act
Connecticut has created additional protections for reproductive rights by adding an affirmative right to choose into its state law. This law ensures women's access to pre-viability abortion services and would remain in effect even if Roe v. Wade were overturned.
"The decision to terminate a pregnancy prior to the viability of the fetus shall be solely that of the pregnant woman in consultation with her physician." Conn. Gen. Stat. Ann. § 19a-602(a) (Enacted 1990).
