Roy M. Mersky
F.B. Rothman, 2000 - Law - 413 pages
The Colautti decision reinforced the importance and primacy of the woman's health in consideration of abortion. The risk that may have been borne by the mother in an effort to provide an opportunity for the fetus to be born alive was seen as too great. This case was also significant in arguing that the definition of "viability" was too vague.
