There is a very good chance that this law will be struck down by all the courts it reaches, including the Supreme Court for the reason Doug listed.
This said, mental health must be considered in laws of this nature. If a girl/woman is raped (or impregnanted because of an incestuous act) and suffers mental health issues because of it, she should be allowed to terminate the pregnancy, IMO. I am not in favor of abortion on demand, however.
