Post-Viability Abortion Restriction

Maryland's post-viability abortion restriction provides that abortion may be prohibited after viability unless necessary to preserve the woman's life or health or unless the fetus is affected by a genetic defect or serious deformity or abnormality. Md. Code Ann. Health-Gen.  §20-209 (Enacted 1991).

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