Policies in Maine

Abortion is legal in Maine until the fetus is viable, which is generally considered around 22-24 weeks. Beyond that, abortion is only available to save the mother's life. In addition, Maine has protections in place for babies that are born alive from failed abortion attempts. Doctors can be charged with homocide or can be held civilly liable if they do not try and preserve the life of the baby.
