Prohibits abortion after 20 weeks with exceptions for the life and health of the mother.
Sixteen states currently ban abortion after 20 weeks. It is questionable whether this would survive a constitutional challenge under existing U.S. Supreme Court precedent, as states can ban abortion after “viability” which, legally, is considered to occur at 24 weeks.
Passage of the bill could result in a lawsuit that would reach the U.S. Supreme Court and provide a context in which Roe v. Wade could be overturned.
