Additional Provisions

In addition, the legislation outlaws abortions performed after the 20th week of pregnancy, a provision based on the controversial notion that an unborn fetus can feel pain at that stage of development. It also regulates how and when abortion-inducing drugs can be taken. Clinics will have one year to upgrade their facilities or shut down when the law takes effect in October.
