Jaffree, U. Barnette, U. This case affords no occasion to disturb Roe's holding that a Texas statute which criminalized all nontherapeutic abortions unconstitutionally infringed the right to an abortion derived from the Due Process Clause. It ruled that the state may implement a policy favoring childbirth over abortion by allocations of public resources such as hospitals and medical staff; d the court upheld the provision requiring viability tests by interpreting it not to require tests that would be "imprudent" or "careless" to perform.

The essential holding consists of three parts: 1 Women have the right to choose to have an abortion prior to viability and to do so without undue interference from the State; 2 the State can restrict the abortion procedure post-viability, so long as the law contains exceptions for pregnancies which endanger the woman's life or health; and 3 the State has legitimate interests from the outset of the pregnancy in protecting the health of the woman and the life of the fetus that may become a child.
The state could allocate resources in favor of childbirth over abortion if it so chose.
No Counseling or Encouraging Abortions: Because of the way the issue of counseling on abortion came to this Court, and because the litigants no longer have a controversy on the point, the issue is moot.
