Maine

Post-Viability Abortion Restriction

Maine's post-viability abortion restriction states that no abortion may be provided after viability unless necessary to preserve the woman's life or health.  Me. Rev. Stat. Ann. tit. 22, § 1598 (Enacted 1979; Last Amended 1993).

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