Freedom of Choice Act of 1993 - Provides that a State may not restrict the right of a woman to choose to terminate a pregnancy: (1) before fetal viability; or (2) at any time, if such termination is necessary to protect the life or health of the woman. Allows a State to impose requirements medically necessary to protect the life or health of such women. Declares that this Act shall not be construed to prevent a State from: (1) requiring minors to involve responsible adults before terminating a pregnancy; and (2) protecting individuals from having to participate in abortions to which they are conscientiously opposed.
