(a) Nothing in this article shall be construed to prohibit an abortion performed by a physician duly licensed to practice medicine and surgery pursuant to Chapter 34 of Title 43, based upon his or her best clinical judgment that an abortion is necessary, except that Code Section 16-12-144 is a prohibition of a particular abortion method which shall apply to both duly licensed physicians and laypersons.

(b) No abortion is authorized or shall be performed after the first trimester unless the abortion is performed in a licensed hospital or in a health facility licensed as an abortion facility by the Department of Human Resources.

(c) No abortion is authorized or shall be performed after the second trimester unless the physician and two consulting physicians certify that the abortion is necessary in their best clinical judgment to preserve the life or health of the woman. If the product of the abortion is capable of meaningful or sustained life, medical aid then available must be rendered.

(d) The performing physician shall file with the commissioner of human resources within ten days after an abortion procedure is performed a certificate of abortion containing such statistical data as is determined by the Department of Human Resources consistent with preserving the privacy of the woman.
