Affidavit of Physician


A physician may execute for inclusion in the minor’s medical record an affidavit stating that, after reasonable inquiry, it is the belief of the physician that:


the minor has made an application or filed a notice of an appeal with a court under this chapter;


the deadline for court action imposed by this chapter has passed; and


the physician has been notified that the court has not denied the application or appeal.


A physician who in good faith has executed an affidavit under Subsection (a) may rely on the affidavit and may perform the abortion as if the court had issued an order granting the application or appeal.
