Code of Alabama - Title 26: Infants and Incompetents - Section 26-23A-12 - Construction of chapter

Section 26-23A-12 - Construction of chapter.

Nothing in this chapter shall be construed as creating or recognizing a right to abortion. It is not the intention of this chapter to make lawful an abortion that is currently unlawful nor to deny a woman an abortion that is lawful. Following abortion counseling, the withdrawal of consent to an abortion must be followed with appropriate referrals to ensure adequate care for a child that is to be delivered.
