Abortion Laws by State post-Roe…

Abortion policy now up to the states after fall of Roe.                                   Status of each state when it comes to abortion…

-Alabama…Potentially illegal…State could try to enforce its pre-Roe law banning all abortions except to save the life of the pregnant person; near-total ban on abortion enjoined but could be reinstated
-Alaska…Legal…Abortion allowed throughout pregnancy
-Arizona…Legal for now…Abortion legal until viability, for now; the state’s pre-Roe law is enjoined but the state could either try to enforce it or ask a court to allow it to enforce it; a 15-week ban will go into effect no later than Sept. 29
-Abortions are, for now, legal until viability.
-Arkansas…Soon to be illegal…Abortion illegal except to save the life of the pregnant person as soon as the attorney general certifies the Supreme Court has overturned Roe

Abortions are legal until viability, and the state Supreme Court has recognized a right to abortion under the state Constitution.
