The Rare and Unconstitutional Husband Notice -
The U.S. Supreme Court held that Pennsylvanias husband notification requirement for abortion is unconstitutional. Planned Parenthood of S.E. Pa. v. Casey, 505 U.S. 833 (1992). This law provides that a married woman may not obtain an abortion until she has notified her husband unless: he is not the father of the fetus; the husband, after diligent effort, could not be located; the pregnancy is the result of reported spousal sexual assault; or she has reason to believe that notification would result in the infliction of bodily injury upon her. 18 Pa. Cons. Stat. Ann. 3209 (Enacted 1989).
