This decision proved that States cannot place undue burdens on a woman's right to have an abortion before the point of survival, at which point the fetus can survive outside the womb.

After survival

States are allowed to regulate or prohibit abortion

except when necessary to protect a woman's life or health.


States may not place an undue burden on women's right to abortion.

several states have passed laws imposing restrictions on abortion

such as mandatory waiting periods :
