Post-Viability Abortion RestrictionTennessee's post-viability abortion restriction states that no abortion may be provided after viability unless necessary to preserve the woman's life or health. A copy of the physician's certificate of necessity must be filed with the district attorney general before the abortion is provided. Tenn. Code Ann. § 39-15-201(c)(3) (Enacted 1989).
NARAL Pro-Choice America supports the legal framework established in Roe v. Wade and does not oppose restrictions on post-viability abortion, such as Tennessee's, that contain adequate exceptions to protect the woman's life and health.
