Yesterday, the West Virginia House passed House Bill 302, which would completely ban abortion in the Mountain State. This bill is moving at breakneck speed through the Senate, and we expect a final vote to take place tomorrow, Friday, July 29.
Here’s the latest call to action from the Women’s Heath Center of West Virginia:
Despite public anger and outcries from the chamber gallery, anti-abortion politicians in the WV House of Delegates forced the passage of a total ban on abortion yesterday. The process was fast-tracked in an unprecedented and overtly politicized manner. And we are disgusted by the callous disregard forced birth legislators have shown for the lives of West Virginian women and people who can become pregnant.
At 1 PM tomorrow, the WV Senate will meet to vote on (and in all likelihood pass) House Bill 302 – a total ban on abortion.
This is it. This is our final chance to gather and make legislators hear our voices before a complete ban on abortion in West Virginia goes into effect.
