The most general provisions on Washington state abortion laws affirm Roe v Wade. It places a borderline at "viability" (which is usually considered between 22-24 weeks) as a point when medical necessity becomes a requirement for obtaining an abortion (if it presents a risk to the health/life of the mother, abortions may be performed after viability).
You can see this law at http://www.fwhc.org/abortion/120.htm
In addition, Washington does not have parental consent laws and does provide Medicaid coverage for low-income women who choose abortion. Let's hear it for laws that make reproductive choice more than just a slogan!
