Prohibits abortion of a viable fetus and requires testing to determine viability if a woman is at least 20 weeks pregnant.
Similar to the 20-week abortion ban (see TN Senate Bill 766). Requiring a determination of viability is an attempt to improve the odds that the law would not be held unconstitutional under current U.S. Supreme Court precedent.
