Text on the Ballot

The ballot question states it "would prohibit any person from intentionally performing an abortion upon a pregnant woman unless her attending physician reasonably determines that the pregnancy endangers the mother's life, or the pregnancy is the result of a sexual assault or incest reported to a law enforcement agency before the abortion. Pregnancy is defined as beginning with conception. A physician or other person performing an abortion under any circumstances would be subject to the existing felony penalty forillegal abortions. The woman procuring the abortion would not be subject to prosecution."
