The Abortion Industry Won’t Like What This Governor Just Did

The governor of West Virginia signed a bill into law that will protect pregnant minors from the abortion industry’s ravenous clutches unless their parents know they intend to get an abortion.

Apparently there was a loophole in the state’s law that allowed a doctor not performing the abortion to waive the parental knowledge requirement for a minor to have another doctor kill her unborn baby.

The Christian post reported that Gov. Jim Justice signed the Right to Know Act, which closes the loophole.

A minor can ask a judge to waive the law if her pregnancy is the result of abuse. From the Christian Post (emphases added):

West Virginia law otherwise requires abortion clinics to notify the parent or guardian of a minor at least 24 hours before the abortion.

A 2011 study, “Analyzing the Effect of Anti-Abortion U.S. State Legislation in the Post-Casey Era,” found that parental involvement laws help to reduce abortions.

In 2014, more than 60 court cases revealed that girls as young as 10 were taken to Planned Parenthood facilities and other clinics for abortions and birth control by their sexual abusers, but because staff failed to report the crimes, the girls were subjected to years of ongoing sexual abuse.

Women have always and will continue to kill their unborn babies for various reasons. Pro-lifers want to reduce the deaths and ban Planned Parenthood and other abortion-mill clinics from receiving taxpayers’ money to pay for the killing.
