Beyond the general cruelty of abortion bans, the bill Gov. Justice just signed provides a dangerously narrow window of opportunity within the so-called 'exceptions' provisions. Not only have women's rights been stripped away in West Virginia, but women's health and safety are now at incredible risk.
This bill protects the fundamental human right to life. As Gov. Justice has stated from the beginning, he'd only sign legislation that protects the unborn while offering reasonable exceptions. This is what House Bill 302 does, and West Virginia proudly follows the lead set forth by the Supreme Court.
