Do abortion laws differ by state?

Can someone give me a site that shows what the law on abortion is in the US and between the different states if they differ?

    Abortion is a federal issue. Each state has the right to comply with federal laws in their own way. Some states require certain disclosures. For example, in some states married women must give notice to their husband who must agree to the abortion. There is also a 24hr wait time in some states.

    They do too. George Tiller was in Wichita, Kansas and specialized in second and third trimester abortions. People from all over the country came there to get one. You cannot get a late term abortion there now but you can still get an abortion.

  • Yes it differs. I don't know if this is what busybee is referring to but if Roe v Wade were ever overturned some states already have laws on the books that as interpreted would make abortion immediately illegal.

  • I am the OP and I live in KS. They definitely DO allow it. There's are something like 2 abortion clinics in Overland Park and 1 in Wichita.
