The Maryland Abortion Law Revision Amendment, also known as Question 6, was on the November 3, 1992 ballot in Maryland as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved. The measure revised Maryland's abortion law to prohibit state interference with a woman's abortion decision before the fetus is viable, or, under certain conditions, at any time and to provide certain exceptions to the requirement that a physician notify an unmarried minor's parent or guardian prior to the abortion. The measure also repealed pre-abortion information requirements about abortion alternatives and repealed or clarified other provisions related to abortion referral. The measure required that abortions be performed by licensed physicians and provided good-faith immunity under certain conditions to physicians. Finally, the measure authorized the state to adopt abortion regulations and repealed certain penalty and disciplinary provisions related to the performance of abortions.[1]
