YOUR LEGAL RIGHT TO CHOOSE
Despite ongoing efforts by some legislators to curb reproductive rights, women do still have the legal right to choose in the U.S. Pregnancy termination is legal in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., although state laws can impose some restrictions. Since these laws are subject to change over time, you can consult a gynecologist regarding the current regulations on first and second trimester abortions.
It’s important for all women to understand their reproductive rights. Pregnancy termination rights do not apply to men. It is not lawful for a man to prohibit a woman from seeking an abortion, regardless of whether the couple is married or whether the man was the person who impregnated the woman. Similarly, it is not lawful for a man to force a woman to have an abortion against her will.
