The Federal Abortion Ban


The Federal Abortion Ban Criminalizes Safe and Medically Appropriate Procedures

In 2003, Congress passed the Federal Abortion Ban, and President Bush signed it into law. As interpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court, the ban outlaws certain second-trimester abortions that doctors have said are necessary to protect some women’s health. The law has no exception for cases when a woman’s health is in danger.

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
