Post-Viability Abortion Restriction

No abortion may be provided after viability unless necessary to preserve the woman's life or health.  The physician must use the available method most likely to preserve the life and health of the fetus unless it would increase the risk to the woman.  Wis. Stat. Ann. § 940.15 (Enacted 1985; Last Amended 2001).

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

93 percent of Wisconsin counties have no abortion provider
