Connecticut has an abortion-specific informed-consent law.
Prior to receiving abortion care, a woman must receive information, including an oral explanation of the procedure and a description of the discomforts and risks, from a qualified counselor. The woman must sign a consent form that describes the "nature and consequences of the procedure which shall be used." Conn. Gen. Stat. Ann. §§ 19a-116, 19a-116-1(c) (Enacted 1983; Last Amended 1996).
