How far along a pregnancy can be terminated if a developmental abnormality is detected?

I thought you can elect to end the pregnancy until 22 weeks, if there are abnormalities in fetal development. Is that so?

You can elect to end a pregnancy at any time during the pregnancy if there is an abnormality (in most states). Certain procedures to end the pregnancy might be prohibited after a certain point in the pregnancy.
