HB 1098 would prohibit abortions after the fetus reaches a gestational age of 22 weeks or greater. A physician that performed an abortion in violation of this proposed law would be found guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor and be subject to a fine but no jail time.
The patient that received the abortion would not be subject to criminal penalties.
The proposed law included an exception for medical emergencies where an abortion is necessary to save the life of the pregnant patient, not including psychological or emotional conditions.
